Strong Family Farm has received funding support for 2022 from CT Humanities that will help us further our mission to provide a historic agricultural education center where children, families, individuals, and community groups can experience an authentic family farm environment.

Connecticut Humanities, the statewide nonprofit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), awarded Strong Family Farm a $9,100 CT Cultural Fund Operating Support Grant. This support has allowed us to hire a new Program Director, Katie Riordan Napolitan. Strong Family Farm was one of 624 organizations in Connecticut that was awarded CT Cultural Fund support totaling $16M from CT Humanities. These grants are part of $30.7M of support allocated to the arts, humanities, and cultural nonprofits through CTH over the next two years by the CT General Assembly and approved by Governor Ned Lamont. This will assist organizations as they recover from the pandemic and maintain and grow their ability to serve their community and the public. Six organizations in the Town of Vernon were awarded support.
