Social Services offers non profit aid

Local non profit organizations may get some financial assistance thanks to the Greenwich Department of Social Services (GDSS), which is applying for proposals to disburse funds to social service and behavioral health agencies for town residents through its Community Partnerships Program.

The Community Partnerships Program provides financial support to community organizations that offer essential services and programs that reflect the GDSS mission. Eligibility to apply for this funding is limited to 501(c) (3) not-for-profit organizations.

Not-for-profit community agencies are needed to provide services in the following service priority areas: Education — child/youth development; Employment and Vocational Training — increase skills for self-sufficiency; Medical/Behavioral Health — access to timely and quality health services; Personal Safety — protection against abuse, neglect and domestic violence and Housing — access to available emergency/crisis shelter.

Interested agencies may obtain a copy of the Request for Proposal (Community Partnerships) starting on May 6 on the town of Greenwich website at

The deadline for submitting an application is June 18.
