IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING FY18 ARTS GRANTS

No final decisions regarding FY18 grants can be made until the CT Office of the Arts receives a confirmed allocation in the FY18-19 state budget. As reported in the news, the Governor and the General Assembly continue to work towards adopting a state budget. The following grant programs are on hold: Supporting Arts in Place, Arts Projects, Regional Initiative, Arts Learning and Artist Fellowship.

The Connecticut Office of the Arts' Regional Initiative (REGI) Grant Program encourages and supports small community arts projects that are aligned with the READI (Relevance, Equity, Access, Diversity and Inclusion) framework.
 
Regional Initiative grants are a good fit for applicants that intend to use small arts-based projects to engage in a specific community matter, reflect on personal experience, and/or that bring neighborhoods together. Matching grant requests range between $1,000 and $4,000 and the funding of projects is regionally distributed throughout the state with partnership support from Regional Service Organizations.
