Program Description

The NGP will award Grants-in-aid to selected private, nonprofit health and human service organizations that are exempt under Section 501(c)(3) and that receive funds from the State to provide direct health and human services to State agency clients.  The purpose of the NGP is to improve the efficiency, effectiveness, safety and/or accessibility of health and human services being delivered by nonprofit organizations under contracts with or funding from State agencies, including Medicaid. 

The NGP is administered in accordance with Section 19 of Public Act 13-239, June 2013 Session, as amended by Section 87 of Public Act 14-98.    The amount of funding for this current round of applications is anticipated to be approximately $30 million, of which up to $12.5 million may be reserved for projects requesting NGP funding in an amount greater than $1.0 million and up to and including a maximum of $3.0 million, provided that supplemental matching funds equal to a minimum of 25% of the NGP award are contributed by the selected applicant.  The remaining amount of the anticipated $30.0 million will be for projects requesting up to $1.0 million in NGP funding with a minimum of $35,000 for each project.

The NGP is to be funded by proceeds from State General Obligation and the funding for this program is subject to review and approval of the State Bond Commission in accordance with Section 3-20 of the Connecticut General Statutes.

The award of any grant pursuant to this program is dependent upon the review and approval of OPM. 



As indicated, the purpose of the NGP is to improve the efficiency, effectiveness, safety and/or accessibility of eligible Section 501(c)(3) health and human services delivering services under contracts with or funding from State agencies, including Medicaid.  The eligible projects include facility alterations, renovations, improvements, additions, and new construction; health, safety and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) projects; energy conservation improvements; information technology systems; technology that promotes client independence; purchase of vehicles; and acquisition of property.
