InterCommunity Health Care Receives $550,000 Grant from East Hartford 

  

East Hartford, CT– InterCommunity Health Care has received a $556,116 grant from the Town of East Hartford. This grant will support the expansion of InterCommunity’s flagship East Hartford campus to serve more people in a safe and welcoming health care environment.  

The Main Street campus currently hosts one of InterCommunity’s nonprofit health care centers, which provided primary care, mental health care, and addiction recovery services to more than 6,000 adults and families in the Greater Hartford area in 2021. Expansion of this site will enable InterCommunity to engage the more than 1,200 low-income individuals living in East Hartford who are currently not served by local health centers.

“The bond funding will enable us to provide whole-person health care in an environment that sends the message of respect and quality the citizens of East Hartford deserve,” said Tyler Booth, Vice President and COO of InterCommunity.  

“InterCommunity has been a strong community partner to the Town of East Hartford. It has expanded access to health care for adults and children through its local and school-based clinics, and so much more. I am grateful to Governor Lamont and the State Bond Commission for their support of this project and the work InterCommunity does to promote residents’ health and wellbeing,” said House Majority Leader Jason Rojas(D – East Hartford, Manchester).  

Since the start of COVID, InterCommunity has invested more than $2 million to create safe and state-of-the-art spaces across InterCommunity’s 17 sites in Hartford, East Hartford, South Windsor, and Glastonbury, CT.
