Senator Norm Needleman Welcomes More Than $700,000 In Grants To Support Local Nonprofits

State Senator Norm Needleman (D-Essex) today welcomed this week’s announcement that more than $700,000 in state grants will be released to nonprofits in Westbrook and Old Lyme. The funds, released through the state’s Nonprofit Grant Program, will be used to support Westbrook’s SARAH, Inc., which supports children and adults with differing abilities, and the Lymes’ Youth Service Bureau, which serves both Lyme and Old Lyme.

“Nonprofits in our communities play an invaluable role in supporting residents and I’m glad SARAH Inc. and the Lymes’ Youth Service Bureau will get this aid to help that noble goal,” said Sen. Needleman. “Support for those with different abilities – SARAH, Inc. helps more than 1,800 children and adults per year – and support for local youth will pay dividends for years to come. I’m grateful to Governor Lamont for this support.”

“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.”

Westbrook’s SARAH, Inc. will receive $325,000 to support renovations, while the Lymes’ Youth Service Bureau will receive $400,256, also for renovations.
