Senator McCrory Secures $6.3 Million in Additional Funding for Local Projects and Nonprofits

The Senate voted Tuesday to approve more than $372 million in soon-to-expire American Rescue Plan Act funding including roughly $6.3 million in additional funding to support projects championed by Senator Doug McCrory, whose district includes Hartford, Bloomfield, and Windsor.

The funding, approved on a 26-10 vote Tuesday, includes $5 million for the Blue Hills Civic Association, a nonprofit working to empower the Hartford and Bloomfield communities through strong schools, safe neighborhoods, and culturally competent health care.

The allocation also includes another $1.3 million to support the Prosperity Foundation, a nonprofit foundation dedicated to improving lives in Connecticut’s Black communities through investments in health and education.

“Years of cultivating strong relationships at the state Capitol have helped me to win substantial funding for our communities,” Senator McCrory said. “This year is no different. Legislation passed this week includes crucial investments to foster thriving neighborhoods throughout Hartford, Bloomfield and Windsor.”

President Biden and Democrats in Congress passed the American Rescue Plan Act in March of 2021 as a means of boosting the American economy amid a downturn caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Every single congressional Republican voted against this funding, which has since supported initiatives including workforce development, public health and safety, and local governments across the nation.
