Year-End Critical Needs Grants Now Available

The Northwest CT Community Foundation has allocated a minimum of $55,000 to distribute to public charities and faith-based organizations in its 20-town service area* for year-end critical-needs grants. More may be available based on need. Grants are made possible through The Northwest CT Community Foundation Draper Foundation Fund and The Northwest CT Community Foundation Marion Wm. & Alice Edwards Fund.

The Community Foundation is accepting applications for year-end critical-needs grants for local organizations serving some of the area’s most economically distressed residents and providing the most basic of necessities—food, warm clothing, fuel assistance and shelter.

Organizations that provide critical human services can apply for grants online through the Northwest CT Community Foundation website, Select Year-End Critical Needs Grants.

Applications are due by Friday, October 22, 2021. Grants will be awarded in December 2021.
