Near & Far Aid awards grants

Fairfield-based Near & Far Aid distributed $967,000 in grants to more than agencies in Fairfield County during its fiscal year concluding Aug. 31.

Grants from the organization support programs helping the homeless, educating children affected by poverty, at-risk families, adults in crisis, and supportive housing initiatives, among others.

Before bestowing grants, Near & Far Aid’s 27-member Board of Directors visits and conducts interviews with each applicant to evaluate the respective agency’s effectiveness and need as well as their financial health and operating efficiency.
