How can we get fund capital projects?

Good to Great 2.0 provides grants of up to $500,000 to fund capital projects for nonprofit arts, cultural, or history organizations that connect art, history, and tourism to enhance visitors' experience of an arts or cultural venue and/or historic site. Funded through Public Act 14-98, Good to Great grants are intended for capital projects. Funding will be prioritized for projects that demonstrate a clear vision of how individual sites and organizations can effectively tie together local, regional, or statewide cultural assets in ways that demonstrate measurable movement from “good” to “great”.


Applicants must be 501(c)(3) organizations that own or operate an arts/cultural venue or historic site in Connecticut and that promote the art, culture and/or history of the state. While organizations of all sizes are eligible, we particularly encourage small to medium-sized organizations with an operating budget of under $500,000 to apply for these funds, as a portion of total allocated funds will be reserved for this constituency.
