The Connecticut Health and Educational Facilities Authority (CHEFA) recently announced it provided six grants totalling more than $1 million to organizations that work toward improving health care in the Nutmeg State.

CHEFA helps Connecticut nonprofits access low-cost debt capital from the tax-exempt public and private debt markets and provides equity capital in the form of grants.

It also awards grants three times throughout the year.

The grants included:

  • $118,551 to The Connecticut Breastfeeding Coalition, which is a statewide entity, to provide lactation training support by and for historically marginalized state residents.
  • $250,000 to the Hartford-based Connecticut Children’s Medical Center to support a nutritional and health initiative that is aimed at improving outcomes for Black and Latino children who may be at-risk for developmental disorders.
  • $140,000 to The Connecticut Council of Family Service Agencies Inc. to deliver behavioral health and family support services to more than 100,000 Connecticut families annually
  • $140,000 to the Connecticut Junior Republic to support the expansion of behavioral services for children and youth
