Sen. Hartley Welcomes $1.1M in State Funding for Waterbury Nonprofits

This week, State Senator Joan Hartley welcomed $1,167,000 in state funding for a number of nonprofits in Waterbury.

  • $200,000 to Waterbury Youth Services for facility upgrades
  • $707,000 to Western CT Area Agency on Aging for IT upgrades to promote client independence
  • $185,000 to the Annie C Courtney Foundation for New Beginnings property acquisition
  • $75,000 to Safe Haven of Greater Waterbury for an ADA Ramp for the domestic violence shelter
“These organizations provide essential services to the Waterbury community and beyond,” said State Sen. Joan Hartley. “I am grateful to Governor Lamont for releasing these funds so that our local nonprofits can make important infrastructure improvements and focus their already burdened budgets on directly helping the communities they serve.”

The grants are being released through the state’s Nonprofit Grant Program, which is administered by the Connecticut Office of Policy and Management. They will be used to fund capital projects not typically reimbursed through other funding mechanisms and will support items such as facility alterations, renovations, improvements, and additions; new construction; health, safety, and Americans with Disabilities Act projects; energy conservation improvements; information technology systems; technology that promotes client independence; purchase of vehicles; and acquisition of property.

The Nonprofit Grant Program was established in 2013 and has since provided more than $130 million to the state’s nonprofit organizations, supporting about 750 projects.
