Arts & Wellness Grants
Utilizing the arts to improve health.

Arts & Wellness Grants support programs and projects that bring the healing power of the arts to the health and wellness needs of populations living with emotional, intellectual, and/or physical challenges. 

These grants fund creative projects and programs by organizations within our 34-town service area. Grants are funded by the Greater Hartford Arts Council's United Arts Campaign and with major support from UnitedHealthcare.

About Arts & Wellness Grants:

  • Four $2,500 grants will be awarded annually
  • Applications must be preceded by an Intent to Apply form and adhere to current guidelines. Please download and review current guidelines before submitting intents to apply or a formal application.
  • Once submitted, applications undergo a rigorous panel review process (see The Grant Process). Panel recommendations are sent to the Arts Council's Board of Directors for final approval.
  • The involvement of professionally trained, experienced artists (e.g.: art therapists, music therapists, drama therapists, etc.) and/or an arts organization is essential.
