The Danbury City Council has approved organizations to be part of a state program. The Neighborhood Assistance Act program allows businesses to sponsor approved community programs and receive tax credits for their contributions. 25 applications were received by the City of Danbury ahead of the April public hearing, seeking 1-point-2 million dollars in contributions. Amos House would use 50-thousand dollars for its Transitional Living Program, Daily Bread Food Pantry would use $50,000 for supplemental food purchases and Danbury Youth Services would use $100,000 for youth and family counseling. The New American Dream Foundation would use $100,000 in contributions toward their hot meals program for seniors, TBICO would use $40,000 for its Better Skills Better Jobs Better Lives program and the Danbury War Memorial would use $75,000 for lower level HVAC and restroom fixture replacements.
