The Hartford Foundation for Public Giving has established a $100,000 Greater Together Community Fund for the Town of Newington.

The purpose of the Greater Together Community Funds program is to:

  • support the community in taking ownership around the needs in their towns
  • encourage broad and inclusive civic engagement and
  • anchor the Hartford Foundation in each town.

Your town has formed an advisory committee to manage a participatory process to identify your town's needs and allocate community funds.

Following the submission of Letters of Interest, the committee has released its grant application for the first round of funding available for programs to support residents of Newington. The short-listed Letters of Interest were notified and invited to participate in submitting a full proposal.
