CT Museums – Kids Are Free Summer Grant Program

CT Humanities is honored to have partnered with the CT Office of the Arts to administer the CT Museums – Kids Are Free Summer Initiative which then became Connecticut Summer at the Museum – Free Admission for Kids.

The Department of Economic and Community Development, in partnership with the Office of the Governor, Connecticut State Department of Education, Office of Early Childhood and CT Humanities, delivered these financially accessible summer enrichment opportunities to families and children of all ages using funding provided through ARP ESSER (American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act, 2021 Emergency and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER)).

CT Humanities awarded a total of $327,067.86 to 18 Connecticut organizations to help enable them to provide free admission to Connecticut children and one accompanying adult between July 1 and September 6, 2021.
