Sen. Hartley Welcomes $414,400 for Middlebury Infrastructure Project

Today, state Senator Joan Hartley (D–15th Senate District) applauded the approval of a $414,400 state grant in support of a pedestrian connectivity sidewalk project in Middlebury. The Small Town Economic Assistance Program (STEAP) grant for Middlebury will support an infrastructure upgrade benefiting Middlebury’s central historic district. The grant will be matched by $103,600 from the town.

“My many thanks to Governor Lamont and his administration for their support of the Middlebury community and approving this major grant. This state funding is key to advancing Middlebury’s sidewalk project. The completion of this economic development project will further scale local quality of life opportunities,” said Sen. Hartley.

The STEAP grant approved for Middlebury is part of state grants awarded to 77 small towns in Connecticut that will receive funding to support projects contributing to economic development, community conservation, and quality-of-life capital projects.
