Danbury Department of Elderly Services applying for grant from Buck Foundation

The Peter and Carmen Lucia Buck Foundation has made funds available to various organizations to enhance quality of life in communities and Danbury's Department of Elderly Services is once again applying for funding.  The grant money, if approved, would be used for services at Elmwood Hall Senior Center to benefit the City's elderly clients by providing additional staff and to expand programing. 


The money would go toward a part-time coordinator to be the Activities Scheduler and to oversee outreach and referrals.  Equipment supplies would also be covered.  The remaining funding will be used to foot a health program, inter-generational programs and a new wellness-based, leisure time or life-long learning program. 


The funding request is up to $60,000.  There is no City match required. 


The Foundation has approved approximately $17,500 remaining from this fiscal year's grant money to be added to any new funding awarded to the Department.
