Governor Dannel Malloy’s office announced that The Connection will receive a total of $880,250 in funding from the state’s Nonprofit Grant Program. The Connection’s proposal was one of 81 nonprofit grant proposals funded. The funds will allow The Connection to make energy efficient and other structural renovations at our 48 Howe Street property in New Haven as well as to purchase new stand-by generators for Connection House in Middletown and Pendleton House in New Haven.
Peter Nucci, President and CEO of The Connection states, “The Connection applauds the administration for making this unique grant opportunity available to address program infrastructure needs. This award will provide emergency preparedness support and save our agency and Connecticut tax payers valuable dollars.”
