HARTFORD, CT — The Connecticut Office of the Arts recently announced the 166 Connecticut Arts Endowment grants that were awarded to local nonprofits totaling $786,107.

The Connecticut Arts Endowment Fund (CAEF) was established by the Connecticut State Legislature to stimulate the development of private sector funding resources for Connecticut-based arts organizations and to ensure the long-term stability of these arts groups by providing funding to organizations.
Grant awards are calculated on a formula which compares the number of non-governmental contributions received by the applicant in its two most recently completed fiscal years, rather than the groups asking for a specific grant amount.
Local nonprofits who received the awards are as follows:
Brookfield
  • Brookfield Craft Center, Inc. – $6,488
Danbury
  • Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut – $1,620
  • Danbury Music Centre, Inc. – $1,313
  • Friends of the Ives, Inc. – $500
New Milford

  • TheatreWorks New Milford, Inc. – $500
  • Village Center for the Arts – $969
