Governor Malloy announced the launch of the state’s first-ever Nonprofit Grant Program in August 2013. The Governor proposed and the Legislature approved funding in the amount of $20M in each year of the FY14/FY15 biennium.
The Governor described the program as a way of helping nonprofit health and human service agencies ensure that their funding goes towards assisting those most in need of their services. "By supporting capital purchases that enhance service delivery, efficiency and effectiveness and addressing health, safety and accessibility issues, nonprofit agencies can focus on what they do best – getting services to those who need them most."
Due to the huge interest in the program, the Governor proposed and the Legislature supported adding an additional $30M in the FY15 biennium, bringing the total over two years to $70M.
The first awards for $20M were issued in FY14. A second round of funding, also for $20M, was issued in January 2015. Both rounds were based on the applications received in October 2013.
