Senator Martha Marx Welcomes More Than $1 Million In Grants For Local Nonprofits

State Senator Martha Marx (D-New London) today welcomed this week’s announcement that more than $1 million in state grants will be released to nonprofits in New London and Old Lyme. The funds, released through the state’s Nonprofit Grant Program, will be used to fund capital projects for nonprofits providing important services to community residents in her district, benefitting improvements and renovations to their facilities.

“Community nonprofits play an important role in supporting and lifting up members of our communities, and knowing these funds will support those in need and bolster the services aiding them is incredibly meaningful,” said Sen. Marx. “I’m grateful to Governor Lamont and my fellow legislators for making sure this funding will support transitional housing, domestic violence victims and renovations to the Lymes’ Youth Service Bureau.”

“Connecticut’s nonprofit providers support residents in every town and are a vital part of our social services safety net,” Governor Ned Lamont said. “Providing funding to make strategic investments helps these organizations deliver the services some of our most vulnerable residents depend upon. This grant funding will help all of the residents that these organizations support be able to utilize their personal strengths, talents, and passions.”

The following organizations will receive funding through this grant allocation:

  • Safe Futures of New London will receive $168,190 to support HVAC system improvements at Phoenix House Transitional Housing, $167,769 to support upgrades to its emergency domestic violence shelter and $44,600 supporting window replacements at Phoenix House Transitional Housing
  • The Child and Family Agency of Southeastern Connecticut in New London will receive $295,000 supporting facility improvements
  • The Lymes’ Youth Service Bureau in Old Lyme will receive $400,256 to support renovations
