Near and Far Aid awards grant to Housatonic Community College
“We are grateful for the support Near and Far Aid provides to our students through this generous grant to the HCC Foundation,” said HCC President, Paul Broadie II. “The financial assistance that this grant supports makes a lasting impact, not only on the lives of the students who benefit, but on the larger community. The economic impact of this support spreads far beyond the classroom as students complete their studies, enter the workforce and become active in the community.
The HCC Foundation will distribute the grant in the form of full-time or partial scholarship to students who have demonstrated academic achievement and a need for financial assistance. Tuition, fees and textbooks are all covered by the scholarship.
Near and Far Aid works with community leaders in the Fairfield County Region with the goal of improving the lives of children and families living in poverty. Since 2000, Near and Far Aid has granted more than $17 million to local nonprofit agencies and programs.
