The Norwalk Housing Authority (NHA) was recently awarded a number of grants, which coordinators say will improve programs for low-income children. The United Way of Coastal Fairfield County has awarded the Housing Authority a $45,000 grant to fund the third year of NHA’s Math Literacy Program, which aims to close the achievement gap in math that exists between Norwalk’s low-income minority youth and their white peers. The United Way also awarded NHA a $5,000 grant, which will be used toward the Norwalk Housing Foundation’s (NHF) College Scholarship Awards.
NHF provides scholarships for low-income minority youth residing in Norwalk Housing Authority developments who wish to attend college.
