Discovery Grant awarded

Colchester - posted Nov, 01 2013

COLCHESTER- The Collaborative for Colchester's Children (C3) is thrilled to announce that it has been awarded the Discovery Grant, a competitive grant in the amount of $40,000, from the William Caspar Graustein Memorial Fund and the Children's Fund of Connecticut for the year 2013-2014. C3, with its many volunteers, partners and supporters, works together to improve the lives of children, birth through age eight, and their families. The grant funding will be used to support the coordination of and implementation efforts of the Collaborative, with particular focus on the areas of health and wellness for families, providing information on family supports and services, and early care and education. Recently, C3 was also awarded a grant for $50,000 to be used for Early Literacy. With the use of collected data and community input, we are working to ensure that all of Colchester's youngest citizens are happy, healthy and successful children. If you would like more information, or to become involved, please contact Cindy Praisner, Early Childhood Coordinator at 860-537-0717 or
