The Cultural Alliance announces its new Funding Booster program, free, and open to all members. The program is designed to help all grant writers, from beginners to seasoned veterans, learn new skills, and burnish old ones, in order to be as successful as possible in all their grant writing ambitions.

Based on the program designed by the SouthEastern Cultural Coalition, the Funding Booster program will increase your access to news about local, state, regional and national arts and culture funding opportunities, provide monthly workshops, drop-in grant clinics to help you with specific grant writing challenges, one-on-one sessions with grant writing expert Jessica Morozowich, regional meetings and panel discussions with funders, and more.

Under our leadership, this program partners with CT Office of the Arts, CT Humanities, New England Foundation for the Arts, and Office of U.S. Representative Jim Himes, CT 4th District.

The Funding Booster program aims to improve this sector’s ability to apply for and to win grants and to increase the amount of funding coming to our region.


Any CAFC member, or staff member of a CAFC member, may register for this program. Register here.


For registered participants we offer  free monthly Drop-In Clinics, where you can bring your grant proposals and questions to ask Jessica and share with other participants. The regular schedule is the first Wednesday of the month, 9am-11am.  Note, however, that the September date has been adjusted.
