The Horace Cousens Industrial Fund is a charitable trust, established in 1930, which gives financial help to Newton residents who are faced with a temporary but severe financial problem. Grants are for one-time specific needs and not for on-going expenses. An applicant must complete an application and return it to the Director of the Cousens Fund at the above address. After the form is received, the director will call the applicant for an interview. The Trustees of the Fund make the decision to approve or not to approve the request at their monthly meeting.
