OMHC Awarded CT Humanities Grant
We are pleased to announce that Connecticut Humanities, the statewide, nonprofit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, has awarded us a $5700 CT Cultural Fund Operating Support Grant (CTCFOSG). The funds will help us enhance our infrastructure and create a more user-friendly updated website that streamlines access into the collection’s online database and promotes our recent rebranding efforts.
The Old Mystic History Center was one of 624 organizations in Connecticut that was awarded CT Cultural Fund support totaling $16M from CT Humanities. The CTCFOSGs are part of $30.7M of support allocated to arts, humanities, and cultural nonprofits through CTH over the next two years by the CT General Assembly and approved by Governor Ned Lamont. The CTCFOSG will assist organizations as they recover from the pandemic and maintain and grow their ability to serve their community and the public.
This grant was administered by CT Humanities (CTH), with funding provided by the Connecticut State Department of Economic and Community Development/Connecticut Office of the Arts (COA) from the Connecticut State Legislature.
