CCT: Arts Catalyze Placemaking Program

Arts Catalyze Placemaking Program

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.

Update on FY2016 grant cycle:
The FY2016 ACP grant cycle will include a number of program options (several project grant options and one operating support option), with specific programs designed to support Arts in Education, Public Art, and Arts Leadership in the Community. 


We are planning to publish all final program information (guidelines and applications) by mid-January and will conduct public information sessions in February (to-be-announced).


Intent to Apply deadlines (mandatory) will likely be early March and grant submission deadlines will likely be early to mid-April, 2015. 


The funding period for all ACP grant programs will be July 1, 2015 through June 30, 2016. 


Some of these dates could change so please keep checking back for final publication and dates.


The Connecticut Office of the Arts (COA) is committed to conducting a fair and transparent granting process. For information on the review process for most of the agency's competitive grant programs, including the Arts Catalyze Placemaking Arts Leadership grant program, please read our Grant Review Process.
