Connecticut Humanities will be re-granting a total of $470,000 in CARES Act funding. Grant awards will range from $2,500 to $15,000 and no match is required (maximum amount of funding that can be requested is based upon an organization’s budget size). Grants may be used for general operating expenses only (such as salaries, rent, utilities, supplies, and equipment).
· Deadlines: Applications will be accepted starting Friday, May 15, 2020, and will be reviewed on a rolling basis until all program funds have been spent. At least three application reviews will be conducted for all applications received by 11:59 pm on June 1, June 15, and July 1, 2020, respectively. Award notifications are made approximately two weeks following a deadline.
· Eligibility: Includes being a Connecticut-based federally recognized tribe or being incorporated in the state of Connecticut for at least one year as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization governed by a board of directors (that meets regularly) and provides significant programs and/or services to the public on a regular basis, including open hours and special events; or functions as a professional service organization that supports humanities program providers.
· Other Requirements: As required by federal guidelines, a DUNS number is needed to receive funds. Apply for it early, as it can take two days to receive it. While not required to initially apply, funds cannot be dispersed without it.
· How to Apply: Applications must be submitted using Connecticut Humanities’ online grant portal. If you do not already have an account with our grants system, you will need to create one in order to be able to apply. The application should take approximately 30-60 minutes to complete.
