Grant to help provide childcare for 72 city families at New Britain Y

NEW BRITAIN – Childcare services at the New Britain Y will benefit from a $1.7 million state grant approved recently by the Community Investment Fund (CIF).

The city’s legislative delegation assisted in securing these funds, which will be utilized by the Meriden-New Britain-Berlin YMCA to make renovations in its New Britain location.

The organization plans to renovate unused racquetball courts into six additional classrooms in their child care center, increasing its capacity by 72 children.

“This funding will help our Y provide high quality affordable infant, toddler and preschool child care for 72 families who live and work in New Britain,” CEO John Benigni said. “Our childcare programs enable parents and guardians to go to work knowing their children are well cared for in a safe, stimulating environment. We thank our legislators for their support helping the Y make a difference in the lives of local children and their families.”
