Your Community Foundation of Greater New Britain established a process to readily respond without delay as a result of the current health emergency caused by COVID-19. Throughout the first half of 2020, two funding options allowed for local organizations serving the residents of Berlin, New Britain, Plainville and Southington to apply for emergency assistance. In addition, we have offered a series of five Zoom webinars designed to help organizations during this difficult time and have linked the recordings below under the Webinar Series Section.
