WEST HAVEN, June 14, 2022 — The city is soliciting financial grant support proposals from West Haven charitable organizations that provide residents with services for combating hunger, Mayor Nancy R. Rossi announced.

The city has received a $400,000 allocation from the U.S. Treasury Department’s American Rescue Plan Act to tackle inequities exacerbated by the coronavirus pandemic. Addressing community food insecurity is an authorized use of the federal funding.

The City Council has authorized Rossi to request grant proposals as part of her ARPA spending plan from charities serving West Haven’s hunger needs.

Organizations that distribute food, such as food banks, operate public feeding services, such as soup kitchens, or provide support services for tackling food insecurity in the city are encouraged to apply for the ARPA grants.

For complete grant details, see the Notice of Funding Opportunity.
