Fiscal agent: United Way of Coastal Fairfield County

PT Partners is a community-based organization led by residents of PT Barnum Apartments, a low-income public housing complex in Bridgeport. The organization empowers residents to identify issues that matter to their community and address them proactively. This funding will help to support an environmental justice fellow for the organization to lead an advocacy campaign by residents to have a voice in addressing issues related to a sewage treatment plant that borders the apartment complex.

This grant was given as part of the Patricia Baker Awards for Health Equity Policy and Advocacy.
