State Humanities Program

General operating support for state or territorial humanities council

The Connecticut Humanities Council (CTH) works to achieve our vision of an engaged and informed Connecticut by encouraging curiosity, understanding, and critical thinking while providing leadership through grants, partnerships, and collaborative programs. Through the Connecticut Humanities Fund, CTH supports the work of organizations using the humanities to help residents and visitors better understand and appreciate human history, culture, values, and beliefs. Connecticut Humanities runs the Connecticut Center for the Book (the state affiliate of the Library of Congress' Center for the Book), which administers the Connecticut Book Awards and an online literature portal. CTH also is responsible for and TeachIt, online state history resources. Lastly, CTH partners with organizations such as the Connecticut League of History Organizations, Connecticut Explored magazine, and Connecticut History Day.
