SHELTON, Conn. -- Valley United Way’s Board of Directors recently approved close to $40,000 in special needs grants for 12 Shelton-area agencies.

The allocated funds are earmarked for special needs and programs not normally covered by an agency’s regular budget and the funds come from funds designated by donors for particular areas of need.

These funds are in addition to the funds awarded through the annual allocations process.

This year’s grants include funding for teen outreach, child assessments. literacy, mental health first aid and meals for seniors.

Valley United Way President and C.O.O. Jack Walsh said that grants made through the special needs process have now amounted to $367,000 since the program first started.

“This program is a nice supplement to the regular allocation process that meets both the special interests of donors and unique situations facing agencies during the course of a year,” he said.
