NEWPORT – Newport is set to receive a $100,000 community development grant.
Last week Governor Phil Scott joined local, state and federal partners to announce over $2.7 million in community development grants to ten communities in six different counties throughout the state.
This grant to the city of Newport will go to support the renovations and upgrades to the Gardner Park recreational facility.
“These grants allow a community to identify its own needs and work with partners to make it happen, which is an approach that makes a lot of sense and has been successful,” said Governor Phil Scott. “Through new housing, improved infrastructure, restored historic buildings and greater support services to the most vulnerable families, these grants strengthen Vermont’s communities, and when paired with local tax incentives generate economic activity to help them grow.”
