The grants are available for residents of many area towns
NEW HAVEN -- United Way of Greater New Haven and the Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven will begin their 4th year of Neighbor-to-Neighbor LifeLine, a partnership to help meet emergency housing and hunger needs in the Greater New Haven and Shoreline regions. The campaign, which began in 2009, has provided nearly $2 million to help individuals and families avert or pull-out of crises caused by the economic downturn.
This year, N2N will make grants to nonprofit organizations, government institutions and/or faith-based organizations to help them meet the emergency food or housing needs of residents of the region.
Grant applications are now being accepted by Greater New Haven organizations that provide emergency food or emergency housing services to residents of New Haven, Bethany, Cheshire, East Haven, Hamden, Milford, North Haven, Orange, Wallingford, West Haven, and Woodbridge. Applications for Greater New Haven are due February 8th at 12:00 noon and must be submitted online.
A separate Shoreline application will be available on January 18th for organizations that provide emergency food, housing, and relief fund services to residents of: Branford, Chester, Clinton, Deep River, Essex, Guilford, Killingworth, Madison, North Branford, Old Lyme, Old Saybrook, and Westbrook. Organizations may submit multiple applications to either process, or apply to both application processes. Visit www.n2nlifeline.org/application for more information.
