MUNICIPAL CLEAN-UP PROGRAM

Matching Grants Up to $2000 Now Available

April 15, 2010

[LIBERTY] – Applications are now available for grants to help municipalities fund clean-up projects, enhanced code enforcement, and asbestos testing to remove dilapidated buildings.  Matching grants of up to $2,000 for each project may be funded through Sullivan Renaissance’s “Municipal Clean-up Grant” program. 

Through this program, Sullivan Renaissance will accept applications from municipalities for a variety of clean-up projects and initiatives.  Examples include clean-up of roadside garbage and debris, removal of obsolete non-conforming signs or billboards, and innovative projects designed to reduce littering along highly visible roads and highways.

A new addition to the program this year allows towns and villages to apply for grants to fund innovative projects designed to enhance the enforcement of building codes and other local regulations governing aesthetics.  Examples include: hiring additional staff, upgrading or replacing software, and specialized training/education.  These grants are intended to increase code enforcement efforts, not replace an existing program or fund regular expenses.

Finally, Sullivan Renaissance is accepting applications from municipalities to defray costs associated with asbestos testing to facilitate removal of derelict, unsafe and unsightly structures.  Upon approval of an application, municipalities may be reimbursed up to $1000 for asbestos testing by a company licensed to perform this service.  There is no match requirement for the asbestos testing.  

The application process is simple, and applications are accepted on a first come first served basis through September 30, 2010.  If funded, projects must be completed by October 31, 2010. Municipalities may use in-kind contributions, private and/or foundation funds, and other sources of revenue for their match. 

Applications are available on line at www.sullivanrenaissance.org.  For more information or to request a copy of the application, contact Helen Budrock at 845-295-2462.

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.  Additional funding has been secured by NYS Senator John J. Bonacic and Assemblywoman Aileen M. Gunther.  Since 2001 Sullivan Renaissance has funded hundreds of projects throughout Sullivan County.
