Senator McCrory Welcomes More than $3 million in Grants for Hartford-Area Nonprofits


Sen. Doug McCrory, D-Hartford, welcomed the release of more than $3 million in state grants Wednesday for Hartford and Bloomfield-based nonprofits to support projects that will upgrade their facilities and strengthen their infrastructure.

“These strategic investments in our nonprofits will help ensure they have the capacity to continue serving the Hartford and Bloomfield communities,” Senator McCrory said. “These groups represent the fabric of our social safety net and I am grateful that Governor Lamont has directed funds to support their missions.”

The funding announced this week for Hartford and Bloomfield-area nonprofits included:

  • Bloomfield – Viability, Inc.: $130,182  for an Employment Technology Lab.

  • Bloomfield – Viability, Inc.: $180,000 to purchase vehicles.

  • Hartford – NAFI Connecticut: $291,144 to replace windows.

  • Hartford – YWCA Hartford Region: $131,00 to replace windows.

  • Hartford – Community Health Services: $401,162 for equipment upgrades.

  • Hartford – Community Partners in Action: $223,769 for facility improvements.

  • Hartford – Mercy Housing and Shelter: $157,000 for a roof replacement.

  • Hartford – Mercy Housing and Shelter: $463,816 for basement renovations.

  • Hartford – Mercy Housing and Shelter: $719,170 for residential campus reconfiguration and the expansion of a parking lot.

  • Hartford – Hands on Hartford: $315,000 for a permanent generator.

The governor’s office awarded the grants under the state Nonprofit Grant Program, an initiative that has provided more than $130 million in support for capital projects by Connecticut nonprofit groups since it was established in 2013.

“Connecticut’s nonprofit providers support residents in every town and are a vital part of our social services safety net,” Governor 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.”
