The Department of Economic & Community Development awarded a $8,000 grant to Cuantro Puntos and a $5,144 grant to the New Britain Youth Theatre. These two organizations play a vital role in promoting the arts in the community and enriching each citizen’s life. I am proud that their influence has been recognized and I will continue to support the arts in the future.

I thank Governor Malloy for his support of these much needed funds.
