Colleague Circle: Good to Great 2.0 Grants Info Session

Good to Great 2.0 grants are now live and accepting letters of intent! 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 our YouTube channel afterwards for those who are unable to attend.
