The Theatre of Northeastern Connecticut was selected by Jewett City Savings Bank to receive a $20,000 grant from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston’s Jobs for New England recovery grant program.

We are especially grateful to Jewett City Savings Bank and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston for recognizing our theatre’s invaluable contribution to the local economy and the key role The Bradley Playhouse has in the community. We are thankful for this huge boost during dark days to provide the help we need to move towards a re-opening when the time comes.

  The Jobs for New England Recovery Grant Program was offered by the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston to member financial institutions in 2020 to assist small businesses and non-profit organizations that have experienced significant losses due to the pandemic.  As a member, Jewett City Savings Bank was able to reserve grant funds for eligible organizations in the Bank’s service area.  Jewett City Savings Bank focused its support to those organizations that had limited opportunities to participate in other funding sources that became available through the CARES Act and other government programs.
