The Arc Eastern Connecticut received $13,000 this year from Eversource and the Jewett City Savings Bank as part of Connecticut’s Neighborhood Assistance 2022 tax credit program. Funds will be directed towards the continuation of an extensive window replacement initiative at The Arc’s Day program facility on Mechanic Street in Danielson, which provides supports to over 150 people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. “We’ve had some great community partners helping us through this program over the past few years,” noted Laurie Herring, The Arc’s Chief Operations Officer. “Our building has many older windows. Thanks to Eversource and the Jewett City Savings Bank, we’ll be that much closer to having it be extremely energy efficient, and we can keep the people we support comfortable and healthy throughout their day.” The Neighborhood Assistance program provides tax credits to businesses who make cash contributions to tax-exempt organizations to help with state-identified priority projects. “It continues to be an extremely important program,” noted Ms. Herring, “since it gives nonprofits funds for capital improvement projects that would normally be impossible to complete.” To learn more about The Arc Eastern Connecticut and its programs throughout the region, please visit TheArcECT.org or contact Denise Tift at (860) 889-4435, ext. 116.
