About Willimantic Welfare Bureau Fund Grants

We support programs and services designed to promote self-sufficiency for residents of the Town of Windham through education and employment.

Priority is given to programs that:

  • promote individual and family economic security;
  • increase food security and access to nutritious food;
  • decrease homelessness through programs that promote diversion and intervention.

What We Will Fund

These grants must be for the benefit of residents of the town of Windham. Grants for multiyear programs may be considered if the applicant can demonstrate need.

Preference is given to programs that are:

  • collaborative in nature;
  • rooted in evidence-based, solution-oriented approaches;
  • include specific, measurable outcomes; and
  • effect positive change over the long term. 

Eligible applicants may submit grant requests of $5,000 to $10,000. Few grants are made at the very top of this range.
