Buck Foundation grant to help Danbury homeless shelter operations

A Danbury philanthropist is providing funding to the City's homeless shelter.  The Peter and Carmen Lucia Buck Foundation grant of $20,000 will go toward the Day and Evening Homeless Shelter Operations and programs. 


The state is requiring all applicants to try to find local sources of funds due to the pending flat or reduced funding during the next application cycle and the ever-increasing pressure on budgets.  Danbury Health and Human Services Director Scott LeRoy says this grant will help the City with future applications to the State for continuation of funding for the Evening Shelter Program. 


LeRoy says this grant will help keep existing programs in operation in order to help local clients who rely on the City's Shelter programs. 


There are no matching funds required from the City.
