Supporting Arts in Place Program

Supporting Arts in Place awards matching grants to eligible arts organizations and municipal art departments to strengthen the state's non-profit arts industry. Applicants do not request specific grant amounts. All eligible applicants to the Supporting Arts in Place category receive an award*. Awards are determined by mathematical formula that considers the following factors:
  • Available funds (allocated to the Supporting Arts in Place category);
  • Total number of applicants;
  • Calculations generated from the aggregate data collected

Eligible applicants include:

Ineligible applicants include:

  • Organizations whose primary legal purpose is not arts-based
  • Organizations whose primary purpose is educational or instructional (e.g. schools, libraries, colleges, etc.)
  • Organizations whose primary purpose is to receive contributions for, or provide funding to, other organizations.  Such ineligible organizations include, but are not limited to, organizations determined to be tax-exempt under section 509 of the Internal Revenue Code.
  • Organizations that received Directed Local Funds (aka Line Items)
  • Organizations who applied during the same period to any FY18 Connecticut Office of the Arts grant program, with the exception of Education Access and Arts Endowment.
