MADISON, CT — Among the $31.3 million in state grants for 77 small towns, Gov. Ned Lamont announced Monday, half a million is earmarked for phase three of the Madison Center Project streetscape.

The funding is for a variety of infrastructure improvements including road safety reconstruction projects, sewer and drainage upgrades, sidewalk and pedestrian safety enhancements, and other kinds of capital improvement projects.

The grants are provided through the Small Town Economic Assistance Program, a state program managed by the Office of Policy and Management that delivers grants to small towns for economic development, community conservation, and quality-of-life capital projects.

The $500,000 in state funding for Madison is for road improvements and enhancements as part of phase three of the Madison Center Project streetscape. This will be matched by $1,076,417 from the town.

“Our small towns are part of what makes Connecticut such a great place to live and work," Lamont said. "By partnering with them on these grants, the state can help get these infrastructure projects completed, so these towns can continue to thrive, remain competitive, attract businesses, and improve the quality of life for our residents."

Towns seeking funding under this round of STEAP grants were required to submit applications to the state by August 15, 2022, and will soon receive official award notification and instructions from OPM. Funding to support these grants was approved at the March 31, 2022, meeting of the State Bond Commission, a group that Lamont leads as chairperson.
