The Connecticut Office of the Arts recently awarded Connecticut Arts Endowment Fund (CAEF) grants totaling $864,233 to 165 organizations across the state.

CAEF grants provide general operating support that organizations may use toward program­ming, administrative or operational costs, capital projects, equipment, or to build their own endowments.

Locally, these incredible grants have been awarded to Norwalk’s Center for Contemporary Printmaking ($2,673), Creative Connections ($2,361), East Coast Contemporary Ballet ($535), Music Theatre of CT, Inc. ($1,443), Norwalk Symphony Society ($2,866), The Norwalk Youth Symphony ($1.961), and Shakespeare on the Sound ($639)!

Please join me in congratulating them!

The Connecticut Arts Endowment Fund (CAEF) was established by the Connecticut General Assembly to stimulate the development of private sector funding and to ensure the long-term stability of Connecticut’s arts industry by providing funding to organizations.  The Fund is managed by the Office of the State Treasurer and the program is administered by the Connecticut Office of the Arts (COA).
