Tannousis Secured $75,000 For Greenhouse Renovations at The Guild for Exceptional Children

Assemblyman Michael Tannousis (R,C-Staten Island, Brooklyn) secured $75,000 in state grant funding for the Guild for Exceptional Children (GEC) to assist in renovations for their greenhouse. The awarded grant funding was secured within the State and Municipal Facilities Program (SAM) and the Community Resiliency, Economic Sustainability, and Technology Program (CREST).

The Guild for Exceptional Children is a Brooklyn-based non-profit organization, providing support for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. For over 60 years, they have offered a wide range of residential services, recreational programs, early childhood education, day habilitation programs and other community-based services.

“It is my honor to present the Guild for Exceptional Children with this funding to help with the necessary renovations for their beloved greenhouse,” said Tannousis. “They have done a tremendous job of facilitating events and programs for individuals in the community and are deserving of this grant to ensure their facility is used for future generations to enjoy. It was a pleasure to visit and tour the facility today.”
