The Connecticut Office of the Arts (COA) has launched its FY2014 Arts Catalyze Placemaking (ACP) grant programs. These programs were created by COA and the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) to invest in arts-based cultural projects, activities and infrastructure in ways that will advance the attractiveness and competiveness of Connecticut cities, towns, and villages as meaningful communities in which to live, work, learn and play.
The former FY13 ACP pilot grant programs have been restructured following a review of program successes, challenges and new opportunities. You can review the Summary of Principal Changes.
A simple overview of the new programs is also available. The FY2014 ACP Grant Programs At-a-Glance chart will provide you with basics including grant award ranges, eligibility and matching requirements, funding periods and all of the important deadlines.
Please visit COA’s FY2014 Arts Catalyze Placemaking home page. You’ll find links to Guidelines, other grant information and forms, as well as additional resources to support your application.
