Record grant money to aid rehab projects across New Hampshire
The project will be one of several North Country efforts to improve and stabilize water and septic systems thanks to what New Hampshire Community Development Finance Authority administrators say is a record $5.27 million in funding for affordable housing, public works, and to address failing infrastructure.
Pittsburg’s phase two will further boost that remediation effort by replacing some 3,100 feet of patched and decaying water main.
The award will help fund installation of new water mains, well pump controls, improved sanitation systems, and water meters for all households on the system.
“These CDBG awards are granted to towns and counties in every part of the state. Most importantly, they’ll provide quality housing and improved public services for more than 1,300 people, 1,000 of whom are low-to-moderate income. The impact … is substantial,” Flynn said in a news release.
A grant of $500,000 to Coös County will go toward the repurposing of Berlin’s abandoned Bartlett School. This building has been a neighborhood eyesore, steadily deteriorating because of flooding and mold growth. Work will completely rehab the structure and create 13 new units of affordable housing.
The grants are awaiting final approval from the Governor and Executive Council, Flynn said.
