Posted

UTICA — The Masonic Care Community has received a $131,000 grant award from the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Disaster Relief Fund. The grant funding will cover costs incurred for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) used during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Masonic Care Community is a nonprofit organization and provider of senior healthcare services and senior living opportunities. MCC also provides rehabilitative services, home healthcare, and operates an onsite childcare center. With a team of around 700 employees, MCC provides care and housing for more than 500 seniors on their 440-acre campus.

This is the second FEMA grant that has been awarded to MCC bringing the total level of disaster relief funding to over $280,000.

“The funding that we applied for and received from the Federal Emergency Management Agency will provide vital assistance to our organization,” shares Mara Mulligan, the director of strategic marketing and philanthropy at the Masonic Care Community. “The FEMA application process is very intensive. We extend our thanks to Louis Rossi of the NYS Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services, as well as Arthur Cornwell from FEMA, and their team members, for their assistance. This funding is truly significant for the Masonic Care Community and we are extremely grateful to have received this award.”
