FERAL CAT GRANT PROGRAM: The Feral Cat Grant Program assists CT non-profit rescue groups with the sterilization and vaccination of feral cats. The Commissioner may now use up to 20% of the yearly APCP income, within available funding, for this program. Since 2007, the APCP has averaged a 98% compliance rate for benefits issued through CT non-profit organizations, for the sterilization and vaccination of feral cats. The voucher will provide a one-time sterilization benefit of $80 for a male cat and $120 for a female cat. Reimbursements for vaccinations given coincident with the sterilization are $30 for 2.
