The program helps Connecticut museums, cultural, humanities, and arts organizations like Roseland Cottage maintain and grow their ability to serve their communities and the public. For Historic New England, that means annually engaging thousands of visitors and students by providing opportunities to explore history in the places where it happened.

A state-wide effort

In total CT Humanities provided $16 million in general operating support grants to 624 organizations throughout the state. The grants are to help the state’s museums, cultural, humanities, and arts organizations maintain and grow their ability to serve their community and the public, connect K-12 teachers and students to strong humanities and arts content, and improve their information technology and digital infrastructure.

Support has been provided to Roseland Cottage from CT Humanities, with funding provided by the Connecticut State Department of Economic and Community Development/Connecticut Office of the Arts from the Connecticut State Legislature. These CT Cultural Fund Operating Support Grant funds are part of $30.7 million of support allocated to CT Humanities over two years by the CT General Assembly and approved by Governor Ned Lamont.
