Current Projects

Each year we take on multiple projects funded through grants from the Federal government, the State of Connecticut, national organizations, local organizations, and/or other independently funded groups. We take on diverse projects related to public awareness, training, professional resources, and studies. Some of our projects last for a short period of time, while others may span years. Some of our projects are on-going, funded through grants that we renew every few years.
