The Arts Catalyze Placemaking (ACP) Program was created to invest in the state's arts-based cultural activities and infrastructure in ways that will advance the attractiveness and competitiveness of Connecticut cities, towns, and villages as meaningful communities in which to live, work, learn and play.
The FY15 program consisted of three (3) distinct categories with separate guidelines prepared for each category. 
The At-A-Glance chart provides applicants with a snap-shot of the entire FY15 Arts Catalyze Placemaking grant program.  While the chart provides an excellent overview of the program, be sure to carefully read the ACP category specific guidelines for complete information. 
INQUIRIES:  If you have questions please email:  Responses will be posted on the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) site on a regular basis. 
OUTCOMES and EVALUATION:  The ACP program is designed with an evaluation component that asks applicants to align their goals and priority outcomes with those of COA.  Provided below are two PowerPoint presentations developed in FY13 which provide an overview of the Goals and Priority Outcomes Table
