About the Small Organization Recovery Grant Program

This grant is designed to assist small nonprofit arts organizations with annual operating budgets of less than $300,000 during the Covid-19 crisis. The Arts Council recognizes the importance of helping sustain these organizations, which are critically important to our community and often serve some of the most vulnerable populations.

This grant is for $2,500 of unrestricted operating funds and may be used for any of your most pressing needs. This is a program of the Greater Hartford Arts Council, made possible by the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving.
