Share This Letter with your Town Leadership to Fund the Arts

Economic help for the arts community could be on its way, but it needs your help!

The American Rescue Plan is sending funding directly to Connecticut towns for their leadership to use in ways that work best for their circumstances.

We are asking towns to reserve 1% for the arts, and either grant funds directly to the creative community or team up with a regional arts council or community foundation to distribute.

Here’s what you need to do



Download the letter below and send it to your town’s leadership along with a personalized note explaining why this funding is so important to you and your town. For general talking points to guide your personal message, visit our Art is Part Talking Points.

Author: Connecticut Arts Alliance

The Connecticut Arts Alliance (CAA) was founded in 2005 as an advocacy organization to ensure that the arts remain central to life in Connecticut. The organization strives to promote and underscore the value of all achievements of the arts industry and all of the ways in which the arts improve daily life for residents of the State. Among its most visible programs are assisting with workshops for the annual Connecticut Arts Day at the Capitol organized by the Connecticut Office of the Arts, and providing advocacy guidance and resources in concert with the Office of the Arts and regional arts service organizations. The organization works to foster public education and awareness of the arts, to increase funding for the arts, and to influence public funding decisions and actions that affect the arts.
