OPEN ARTS ALLIANCE WINS A CT HUMANITIES GRANT!
Open Arts Alliance is happy to announce we are the winner of a CT Humanities Care Grant.
The CT Humanities CARES Act Humanities Relief Grant program is made possible with funding provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act to preserve jobs and help support organizations negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
CTH is grateful to Connecticut’s congressional delegation for their support of the CARES Act and to the National Endowment for the Humanities for its partnership which seeks to have a positive impact on all our communities through grant making.
As Connecticut’s only statewide public humanities organization, CTH is focused on grant making, capacity building, digital content, and advocacy for the state’s cultural sector. According to Jason Mancini, Executive Director at CTH, “CARES Act funding has allowed us to provide added and critically needed support to historical societies, museums, cultural centers, civics and education organizations, libraries, and arts organizations in communities across Connecticut. As the coronavirus pandemic has disrupted and devastated our state’s once-vibrant cultural and educational outlets, CT Humanities will continue working with its partners to secure additional funding that will be critical to the future and vitality of Connecticut’s cultural sector.”
