CT Humanities Cultural Relief Grants

CT Humanities and the Connecticut Office of the Arts partnered to provide relief funding to cultural organizations that continued to present arts and humanities programs and services while facing financial hardship resulting from COVID-19. These organizations demonstrated their commitment to advancing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) work in their mission and operations, and commitment to the Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) community.

Connecticut Humanities re-granted a total of $85,000 to cultural organizations across Connecticut. Each grant award was $5,000 and could be used for general operating expenses with no funding match.
