Western CT legislators advocate state funding for Cultural Alliance of Western CT
Recognizing the Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut as a leader in promoting and advocating for arts, history, and culture as a primary driver of the economy in Northern Fairfield and Southern Litchfield Counties, members of the Western Connecticut legislative delegation have proposed a bill in the General Assembly to provide support to the Cultural Alliance. Through the expansion of the State’s current arts grants to include the Cultural Alliance, the act would appropriate $79,000, administered through the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development, and effectively open the doors for the Cultural Alliance to be recognized annually as a Connecticut state budget line item. With offices at 287 Main Street, Danbury, the Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut is the only regional service organization working to leverage the arts to grow the regional economy and ensure better access to arts and culture for all residents and visitors in Western Connecticut.
