The Witness Stones Project was recently awarded a $6900 CT Cultural Fund Operating Support Grant from CT Humanities (CTH). CT Cultural Fund Operating Support Grants assist organizations as they recover from the pandemic and maintain and grow their ability to serve their community and the public.
Witness Stones Project Co-Founder and Executive Director Dennis Culliton says that the CT Cultural Fund Grant will enhance the Witness Stones Project’s ability to serve all interested communities across the state, regardless of the local resources.
