Senator Anwar Cheers Latest Hartford Foundation COVID-19 Grant Funding Announcement


State Senator Saud Anwar (D-South Windsor) cheered the latest announcement by the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving that it was releasing its eighth round of grant funding to local nonprofits through its COVID-19 response fund. The fund, which has now given more than $5 million in funding, is intended to support residents who are most significantly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Throughout the pandemic, the Hartford Foundation has continually provided support and resources to organizations in our community supporting those most vulnerable to the impacts of COVID-19, in all of the ways this disease has impacted our community," said Sen. Anwar. "These grants don't just help provide food to those in need but continue to support youth development services and services for individuals with impairments and disabilities, among other worthy causes."

This eighth round of grants, totaling $286,000, supports 11 community-based organizations, including a $5,000 grant to East Hartford Interfaith Ministries to allow it to continue offering meal services and other direct assistance to low-income residents. Previous grant recipients include East Hartford Public Schools, Goodwin University, InterCommunity Health Care and Foodshare, among many other organizations supporting local communities.
