HARTFORD, CT - Governor Dannel P. Malloy on Friday announced that the State Bond Commission approved the authorization of nearly $15 million in funding for nonprofit organizations.

“I am pleased that my administration has been able to take positive steps to support nonprofit providers, which serve all citizens of Connecticut and play a substantial role in maintaining our safety net during challenging times,” said Governor Malloy. “Partnering with our nonprofit organizations is a smart fiscal investment to ensure that these agencies can continue to provide services while doing so in an efficient, cost-effective way.”

Thirty two nonprofit organizations are scheduled to receive funding, including cultural and historic organizations and organizations providing healthcare and human services.

According to Terry Edelstein, Nonprofit Liaison to the Governor, “these bond funds will help nonprofit organizations streamline programs and services through local, regional and statewide collaborations, to carry out their strategic planning initiatives and to support individuals and families with significant challenges.”

Six nonprofit organizations in collaboration with nine other agencies were awarded funding through the Office of Policy and Management’s Nonprofit Collaboration Incentive Grant Program, which provides funds for one-time infrastructure costs to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the services provided by the agencies. Through this collaborative venture, a total of 15 organizations are slated to receive funding.

In addition, the State Bond Commission today authorized awards to nonprofit organizations funded through the state Department of Social Services (DSS), the state Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS), the state Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD), the state Department of Public Health (DPH) and other state agency bond pools.
