Program. The student project was part of a course called Grant and Proposal Writing taught by adjunct English professor Thomas Sobocinski.

The grant, which is awarded to faith- and community-based organizations that work with the homeless in the Bridgeport area, totals $16,750. It will enable Bridgeport’s Applied Behavioral Rehabilitation Institution, Inc.’s (ABRI) Homes for the Brave program, which assists homeless former service members in Connecticut, to implement a marketing and re-branding plan. The grant will also help the agency purchase a laptop, projector, and accessories to give presentations.
