Nine neighborhood organizations received funding from the Hartford Greater Together Community Fund from the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving totaling $26,450.
According to a news release, grants have been awarded to local organizations to support initiatives that deal with issues including food insecurity, education, housing, health care, child care, or criminal justice. The grants were between $1,200 and $5,000.
The Hartford Community Fund Advisor Committee, a smaller committee that is a member of the Greater Together Community Fund, is made up of volunteers. The committee, which is in charge of selecting the prize recipients, was established in 2020, according to the news announcement.
The advisory committee's head, Lara Langer, outlined the requirements for qualifying organizations. They must have a physical presence in Hartford, an operational budget of $1 million or less, and be directly serving Hartford citizens.
According to Langer, the committee's goal is to support nonprofit organizations that have fewer employees and funds while they carry out their beneficial work for Hartford citizens.
"We are honored to support programs that positively influence the lives of city residents, both children and adults, daily. The advisory council is dedicated to promoting the commitment and admirable work of Hartford's charitable organizations, according to Langer. We are excited to announce the recipients of our most recent round of awards, who are all organizations serving the vital needs of residents of Hartford.”
Theta Alpha Sigma Alumnae Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Catholic Charities, Active City, Hartford's Proud Drill Drum and Dance Corporation, Hartford Police Activities League of Hartford, Act Up Theater, and the West Indian Independence Celebration was among the recipients of awards. These organizations offer the Hartford community a variety of community, educational, academic, and cultural services. A news release from the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving includes a complete list of the grants awarded, as well as initiatives that were funded in part by those grants.
According to Langer, they intend to expand their program and publish submissions for their fourth round of grant money later this year.
“It would be wonderful if some people wanted to donate or let others know about little organizations in Hartford. We are constantly looking for new nonprofits to help," Langer added.
