Supporting Arts Grant – Open Now!

CT Office of the Arts | June 13, 2022

Application deadline: August 1st

The Supporting Arts grant program provides general operating support to help Connecticut’s arts organizations and municipal arts departments cover programmatic costs associated with their mission-related work. This type of grant is flexible and gives the grantee the ability to use the funds where they are most needed.

* Some restrictions apply. Visit Eligible Expenses for funding restrictions.

The Connecticut Office of the Arts (COA) will provide $1M in general operating support grants in FY23.

New for FY23:  Grant awards will be proportional to organizational operating expenses for their last completed fiscal year and will be calculated based on a combination of operating expenses and available funds. The minimum grant award is $1,000. The maximum grant award will be dependent on available funding and the number of eligible applicants.  All eligible applicants will receive funding.

Note: This funding model is the same funding model that was used to determine awards for the FY22 CT Cultural Fund General Operating Support and the FY22 General Operating Support for Theaters and Performing Groups programs.
