Second Round of Infrastructure Grants Announced
The Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development has announced that it has made available the application materials for its latest round of the MassWorks Infrastructure Program.
The program is a consolidation of six former grant programs and provides public infrastructure financing to support economic development and job and housing creation. This includes transportation improvements in small, rural communities, mixed use developments, and redevelopment of previously developed sites. All the relevant materials regardind the program are available at www.mass.gov/hed/massworks
The submission period for grant application runs between August 27 and September 10, 2012, so there is still plenty of time to put together an application. The grant award decisions will be made by the end of October. Last year's program awarded grants to 42 communities throughout Massachusetts; projects that are set to begin construction this spring.
