Two Danbury nonprofits receive grants
Two Danbury nonprofits were among the recipients of grants announced Thursday as part of the state’s Nonprofit Grant Program, which helps organizations with one-time infrastructure improvements.
The grants totaled about $30.8 million and were awarded to 92 nonprofit organizations, according to a news release.
Family & Children’s Aid, Inc. in Danbury received $280,600 for its Playmakers Village and MWCCA, which is based in Danbury, received $191,232 for HVAC, roof and renovations and a Trinity Glen Well & Water Storage Tank at its outpatient site in Bridgeport.
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy created the program in 2013. Since then there have been seven rounds of grants that total $105 million in grants for hundreds of the state’s nonprofit organizations.
“Connecticut’s nonprofit organizations serve every resident of Connecticut and play a substantial role in maintaining our safety net,” Malloy said in a news release. “Partnering with them is a smart fiscal investment to ensure that they can continue to provide services while doing so in an efficient, cost-effective way. By supporting capital purchases that enhance the delivery, efficiency, and effectiveness of the services they provide, these nonprofit organizations can focus their attention on what they do best - getting services to those who need them most.”
