The focus of the Social Service Department is to coordinate existing federal, state, regional and local services, to increase community awareness of these services and to develop new programs to meet the needs of Granby residents. For more information about any of the following programs please call the office.

Granby Local Assistance Program

Granby residents facing financial hardship may access funds once in a twelve month period. The gross household income cannot exceed 60 percent of State Median Income, unless extenuating circumstances can be documented. 

Fuel Assistance Program

Connecticut Energy Assistance Program (CEAP). During the winter months, help is available to households to help pay for heating fuel in the form of oil, gas, or electric heat. To qualify you must provide proof of your household’s total income and assets that must not exceed the program limits. Fuel deliveries start in November.

Processing will be delayed if necessary paperwork is missing. Call office to see if your household qualifies and to schedule a confidential appointment.

Prescription Discount Card

Presented by the Town of Granby, this card helps residents save money on prescription medications any time a prescription is not covered by insurance. There is no cost to participants and not all medications are covered.

Appointments available on Wednesdays through November 13.

CHOICES is a program provided by the State of Connecticut which presents information and assistance about Medicare. Counselors are trained in Medicare and are not affiliated with insurance companies. Call 860-844-5350 to make an appointment.
