Windham Arts, the State’s Designated Regional Cultural Service Organization, as a partner with the Connecticut Office of the Arts, presents: Regional Initiative Grants
The Connecticut Office of the Arts (COA) developed this project grant in partnership with its nine Designated Regional Cultural Service Organizations which make up a valuable statewide service network. The Regional Initiative grant program (REGI) is a good fit for applicants primarily interested in small projects that support access to the creative process and/or creative experience, especially those projects that experiment with new ways to apply the arts within community. Grant projects can take many varied forms: engage in a specific community matter, reflect on personal experience, bring neighbors together, etc.
