At Connecticut Water, we recognize the importance of having fire protection for the safety of residents and businesses in the communities we serve. We value the service firefighters and emergency responders provide to our communities every day to ensure our safety and protect our homes, businesses and communities. In recognition of their efforts and to support their vital work, Connecticut Water established our Firefighter Support Grant Program.
Through our Firefighter Support Grant Program, we will award up to $15,000 in grants each year to fire and emergency organizations serving communities in the company’s designated service areas, which include communities served by Avon Water and Heritage Village Water. The maximum grant amount per eligible organization is $1,500 per calendar year.
This program is funded as part of the company’s Charitable Giving program, and is not recovered through customer rates.
Applications are now open for our 2021 Firefighter Support Grant Program.
