A dozen Connecticut nonprofit arts and cultural organizations are set to receive more than $3 million through a state grant program.
The Department of Economic and Community Development's Good to Great initiative funds projects that tell stories of cultural and historic sites in engaging, meaningful and relevant ways.
The funding can be used for a variety of needs, including construction, exhibit design and installation, planning and marketing. Recipients must provide a 25 percent cash match.
This list of grants includes nearly $97,000 for the Keeler Tavern Museum & History Center in Ridgefield for facility improvements for its most fragile objects that relate directly to major moments in U.S. history. The grant will pay for climate controlled, fire-protected, well-designed storage.
