Learn the latest about the Arts, Culture, and Tourism Funding Roadmap, a campaign to secure more meaningful, reliable, and equitable state funding for arts, culture, and tourism.

During the 2023 legislative session, our elected leaders will make decisions about budget priorities for the next 2 years. This is our chance to make sure the arts, culture, and tourism communities receive state support that recognizes our importance to Connecticut's economy, the vitality of our cities and towns, and the health and well-being of all who live here.

Connecticut Arts Alliance, Connecticut Humanities, and the Connecticut Tourism Coalition joined together to develop this comprehensive roadmap to help guide legislators to better state support for our communities.

Whether you're working in the arts, the humanities, or the tourism
industry, you'll want to join us to learn more about the roadmap, the legislative process ahead,and how you can be a part of this important initiative.

We plan to keep you updated throughout the legislative session.

Mark your calendar with these dates too: February 22, and March 29, at 9am

Join the CT League of History Organizations as they offer a webinar on the Good to Great 2.0 grants this Friday, Jan. 20 at 3pm.  Register here.   Deadline for Letter of Intent: Feb. 3

These grants will provide up to $500,000 in funding for capital projects for nonprofit arts, cultural, or history organizations that connect art, history, and tourism to enhance visitors’ experience of an arts or cultural venue and/or historic site. Competitive applications will not only look beyond basic facilities repair, rehabilitation, or expansion but also towards new means of sharing and telling the stories of our state’s rich history and culture in engaging, meaningful, and relevant ways. Funding will be prioritized for projects that demonstrate a clear vision of how individual sites and organizations can effectively tie together local, regional, or statewide cultural assets in ways that demonstrate measurable movement from “good” to “great”.

Join Scott Wands and Lian Partridge from the CT Humanities granting program and Liz Shapiro, Director of Arts, Preservation & Museums at DECD for the State of Connecticut, to learn more about this funding opportunity. We’ll walk you through the letter of intent, application and guidelines, and provide ample time to answer all your questions.

A recording of this program will be available on the CLHO  YouTube channel afterwards for those who are unable to attend.
