Rep. Lesser Hails Grants For Middletown Arts

Rep. Matthew Lesser (D-Middletown), House chair of the legislature’s Banking Committee, hailed today’s announcement of state grants approved for Middletown organizations for the arts.

“I'm thrilled that this funding is coming to these great Middletown area ("liberal") arts organizations,” Representative Lesser said.

The Connecticut Arts Endowment Fund (CAEF) program awards funds to Connecticut arts organizations that have raised more than $15,000 in contributions from non-governmental sources for two consecutive fiscal years.

Here are the grants:

•           Artists for World Peace - $27,458
•           Middletown Chorale, Greater - $1,330
•           North End Arts Rising/Buttonwood Tree - $500
•           Oddfellows Playhouse Youth Theater - $1,960

The fund is managed by the Office of the State Treasurer and the interest earned on the fund’s principal is distributed annually to eligible arts organizations through the Connecticut Office of the Arts.
