YMCA applies to be part of Neighborhood Assistance Act program

A public hearing was held recently in Brookfield about a proposal by the Regional YMCA of Western Connecticut for their support campaign.  The YMCA applied to be part of the state-run Neighborhood Assistance Act Program.  Proposals are eligible to receive donations from various people and businesses.  Contributors will then receive a tax credit they normally wouldn't receive.  The YMCA will receive $150,000 in state funding for their proposal.  Brookfield Human Resource Development oversees the local program, which requires a public hearing.  The Board of Selectmen approved the proposal.  First Selectman Steve Dunn cleared up some confusion among residents saying there is no town funding being allocated.  The YMCA is the only Brookfield municipal or tax exempt organization to apply each year, and have done so for several years.
