The City of Bradford has been awarded more than a half million dollars for two community revitalization projects, Rep. Martin Causer (R-Turtlepoint) announced today.
“This is a great investment in our city and all of the people who live and work here,” Causer said. “It is also a testament to the hard work and dedication of the city and the Office of Economic and Community Development.”
A $500,000 grant was awarded to help support construction of new single-story homes, commercial rehabilitation and restoration, and key infrastructure upgrades in a second ward neighborhood.
An additional $50,000 was awarded to implement a façade improvement program in the city’s downtown area. Specifically, the funding will provide matching grants, up to $5,000, for exterior building improvements.
The grants were awarded by the Department of Community and Economic Development through its Keystone Communities program, which is designed to encourage the creation of partnerships between the public and private sectors in the community, supporting local initiatives that grow and stabilize neighborhoods and communities; ensure social and economic diversity; and enhance the overall quality of life for residents.
