20 non-profits are sharing in state funding for cultural and historic sites. The Department of Economic and Community Development is doling out nearly $2 million from the Good to Great Program.
Among those sharing in the funding is the Bethel Historical Society. The group is receiving little more than $69,000 in state funding. The Wilton Historical Society will receive $125,000.
Department Comissioner Catherine Smith says 46 applicants submitted projects that demonstrate a clear vision of how individual sites can improve the customer experience and promote more visitors. They also demonstrated how they tie together local, regional or statewide cultural assets.
