Register with Bill

CT Humanities transitioned from sending paper checks for payments to electronic funds transfers using Bill in January 2023.

Below are instructions on how to get things set up on your end to allow CT Humanities to electronically send payment for your first award payments. Please note that it is free to receive payments through Bill (through standard delivery) —there will be no charge to any organization for this changeover to Bill.


When creating an account in Bill, please consider using an email address that multiple members of your organization have access to in the event of turnover.

NOTE: Bill labels the grant award payment from CTH as an invoice. Your Bill account will show that you have an overdue invoice from CTH. There is no action needed for this. Please do not email CTH requesting an invoice. When our office processes payment for your award, you will receive an automated email letting you know that your account will be receiving a payment from us.
