Senator Maroney Applauds $359,063.14 In State Funding For Milford School Air Quality Improvements

Today, State Senator James Maroney (D-Milford) applauded the announcement by Governor Lamont’s administration that two Milford schools will receive $359,063 in state grants to support replacements and improvements to their HVAC and air conditioning systems. These grants are the result of legislation passed by the state legislature in 2022, encouraging schools to install, replace or upgrade these systems for improved ventilation and indoor air quality to support student learning and the overall health of their school communities.

“The continued success of the Indoor Air Quality Grant Program will support our local schools benefitting both public health and educational growth,” said Sen. Maroney. “I’m grateful to Governor Lamont for his continued support of our communities.”

Milford’s Joseph A. Foran High School will receive $298,692.19 to support $788,938.70 for replace heating and cooling in certain areas of the school. The Academy in Milford will receive $60,370.95 to support replacement of HVAC equipment, unit ventilators, roof top exhaust units and boilers.

In 2022, the General Assembly voted to create the Indoor Air Quality Grant Program, which provides matching grants to support municipalities needing work not covered by grants. Eligible schools and districts are those found to have the greatest need for indoor air quality improvements.
