New Haven Museum Receives 2nd COVID-19 Grant from Connecticut Humanities


New Haven, Conn. (January 5, 2021) – Connecticut Humanities has awarded the New Haven Museum (NHM) a $ 22,727 COVID Relief Fund for Museums Grant. NHM is among 50 state-wide nonprofit arts and humanities organizations that will receive relief funds totaling $1.5 million. The grant funds will be used to support salaries, contractual services, insurance, utilities and service expenses in the second half of 2020.

This grant was awarded by CT Humanities, with funding provided by the Connecticut State Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD)/Connecticut Office of the Arts (COA) through an allocation to the State of Connecticut from the CARES Act.

“This grant comes at a critical time for Connecticut museums,” says New Haven Museum Executive Director Margaret Anne Tockarshewsky. “We are grateful to Connecticut Humanities and CT DECD/Office of the Arts, and the state legislature for their unwavering support during this most challenging year.”

Dr. Jason Mancini, executive director at Connecticut Humanities, stated, “Like performing arts venues, museums and other public humanities organizations are dependent on various revenue streams that simply evaporated because of the pandemic. These are vital and vibrant places in our communities that also need a bridge to the future. As the principal advocate for and funder of humanities nonprofits in our state, CTH is uniquely positioned to accept and award this funding and we are grateful to Governor Lamont, OPM Secretary McCaw, and DECD Commissioner Lehman for their support.”
