Senator Saud Anwar Welcomes More Than $500,000 In East Hartford Nonprofit Grants

State Senator Saud Anwar (D-South Windsor) today welcomed this week’s announcement that more than $1 million in state grants will be released to the nonprofit InterCommunity in East Hartford. The funds, released through the state’s Nonprofit Grant Program, will be used to fund capital projects for the organization to improve its resources for those it aids.

“InterCommunity does incredible work to provide health resources for community residents across East Hartford and beyond,” said Sen. Anwar. “I’m ecstatic to know they will receive these funds to bolster their resources and better serve the local community. Thanks to Governor Lamont for his foresight and 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.”

Intercommunity will receive $361,250 to help with HVAC work and $199,863 to support the construction of a mobile unit barn to aid its services.
