Under Stepping Forward, the REACH through the Arts pilot grant program and BIPOC Cohort for Nonprofit Leadership program have launched
Under Stepping Forward, the Racial Equity and Creative Healing (REACH) through the Arts pilot grant program was developed in partnership with the Arts Council of Greater New Haven. Seventeen local art projects were selected by a panel of peers to receive $600,000.
