‘DERELICT BUILDING REMOVAL’ EXPANDS

Municipal Clean-Up Applications Due Friday, March 30

February 28, 2007

[LIBERTY] – Sullivan Renaissance announced that applications are now available for the Municipal Clean-Up Grant Program designed to assist towns and villages with the clean-up of roadside sites and the removal of derelict, unsightly and unsafe structures. 

 

Last year’s pilot program distributed $15,000 in matching grants to take down derelict buildings in the Town of Fremont, Town of Bethel and Village of Liberty.  Because the program was popular and successful, the number of available grants has been increased this year. 

 

Municipalities may apply for matching funds up to $5,000.  They may use in-kind contributions, private and/or foundation funds, and other sources of revenue for their match.  In addition, Sullivan County will cover the tipping fees associated with disposal of the construction debris at the county landfill.  The application process is simple, but applications must be received by the March 30, 2007 deadline.

 

“We want to thank our county and municipal officials for partnering with us once again on this grant program to help restore Sullivan County,” said Sandra Gerry, who chairs the Sullivan Renaissance Steering Committee. 

 

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Beaverkill Foundation and the Gerry Foundation.  Copies of the Municipal Clean-Up Grant application are available on line at www.sullivanrenaissance.orgFor information about this or other programs, contact Sullivan Renaissance at 845-295-2445.
