DERBY >> The Valley Community Foundation handed out more than $33,000 in grants to Valley nonprofits to support programs ranging from exposing middle school kids to college campuses to assisting the hearing impaired.

According to a press release, $33,295 was awarded through VCF’s Community Grants program to 15 community groups serving the Valley.

Nonprofits with less than two full-time or less than four part-time staff from Ansonia, Derby, Oxford, Seymour and Shelton can apply for grant money from $250 to $2,500.

“VCF is proud to support these 15 organizations with more than $30,000 in Community Grants,” said VCF President/CEO Sharon Closius. “Community Grants are responsive to groups that are volunteer or nonprofit in nature with very limited staffing capacity and serve our five-town region. Using this grant support, these small, dedicated organizations can work on issues that make a big difference in our community.”
