Funding Booster Program

Our FUNDING BOOSTER PROGRAM provides monthly drop-in grant clinics, workshops, consulting, online resources, peer-to-peer resource sharing, and technical support to improve our region’s arts and cultural sector’s ability to capitalize on local, state, New England and federal grant opportunities. 

Under our leadership, this program partners with CT Office of the Arts, Community Foundation of Eastern CT, CT Humanities, New England Foundation for the Arts and Office of U.S. Rep Joe Courtney, CT 2nd District.

Our Funding Booster Program aims to improve the arts and cultural sector’s ability to apply for and win grants and to increase state, regional and federal funding to the creative sector in our region.
