Sen. Lesser Welcomes $2M in State Funding for Middletown, Cromwell Nonprofits

This week, State Senator Matt Lesser, Senate Chair of the Human Services Committee welcomed over $2 million in state funding for a number of nonprofits in Middletown and Cromwell.

  • $71,544 for Gilead Community Services, Middletown for waterproofing and HVAC upgrades
  • $105,300 for Gilead Community Services, Middletown to upgrade and replace clinical laptops and monitors
  • $544,222 for The Connection, Middletown for IT Infrastructure
  • $950,000 for St. Vincent de Paul, Middletown for new construction at St. Vincent Commons
  • $350,000 for Adelbrook Behavioral and Developmental Services, Cromwell for Playscape Expansion and Enhancement

“Our nonprofits do incredible work while operating on shoestring budgets,” said State Sen. Matt Lesser. “I have long been an advocate of increasing our investment into these essential services, and I am grateful that Governor Lamont is releasing funding so that our local nonprofits can make necessary infrastructure improvements to better support their missions.”

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.
