Senator Osten Announces State Funding For Hebron And Lisbon Infrastructure Projects

State Senator Cathy Osten (D-Sprague) today welcomed the release of nearly $1 million in state Small Town Economic Assistance Program (STEAP) funds for local infrastructure improvements in Hebron and Lisbon.

Governor Ned Lamont announced today that Hebron will receive $493,200 in state funding for the installation of a pedestrian bridge on Pendleton Drive (to be matched with $100,000 from Hebron), and that Lisbon will receive $500,000 in state funding for sidewalk rehabilitation at Strawberry Fields (to be matched with $100,000 from Lisbon).

“Connecticut makes regular, important investments in its small towns, and today is another example of that with the release of these STEAP grants as approved by the State Bond Commission,” Sen. Osten said. “Any time we can take some of the burden off of local taxpayers to make solid, long-lasting investments in their communities is a good thing”.

STEAP funds are issued by the State Bond Commission and can only be used for capital projects. A project is considered to be a capital project if it is new construction, expansion, renovation or replacement for an existing facility or facilities. Project costs can include the cost of land, engineering, architectural planning, and contract services needed to complete the project.
