HARTFORD – State Representative Robin Green (R-55) applauded the State Bond Commission’s decision to approve two separate Grant-in-Aid grants for the Town of Hebron.
The first $2,000,000 grant will be used to purchase a backup electric generator for RHAM High School so that the school can be used as a regional emergency center. The second $232,666 grant will be used to replace the Douglas Library roof.
“I am pleased the Bond Commission recognized the importance of these local projects to our community,” Rep. Green said. “In the event of a major emergency, a backup generator at RHAM High School will provide area residents with a place they can go to for shelter if need be. While replacing the 22-year-old roof at the Douglas Library will not only bring it up to code, but also prevent rainwater from finding its way inside and ruining or damaging their collection or computers.”
Municipal Grant-In-Aid grants are designed for towns that do not qualify for either of the Urban Act Grants Program or the Small Town Economic Assistance Program (STEAP) to assist with community revitalization. These grants must be used for construction, reconstruction, improvement or maintenance of highways, bridges or structures, replacement and maintenance of traffic signs, signals and markings, and for traffic control and vehicular safety programs, and other capital related projects.
