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.”
