State lawmakers applaud $$ for Granby senior center renovations

GRANBY – Granby state lawmakers are applauding the release of $126,800 in state funding for senior center kitchen renovations.

“The senior center is a hub of community activity,” Sen. John A. Kissel said. “We want to make sure it continues to be safe, accessible, and  welcoming place for seniors to gather. We appreciate the governor’s attention to this remodeling project, and we will continue to work closely with Granby officials regarding future needs.”

“As the Ranking Senator on the Aging Committee, I am always seeking out ways in which we can improve the quality of life for Connecticut’s seniors,” Sen. Lisa Seminara said. “In Granby, these funds for the senior center are a wise investment in a community gem. We thank the governor for releasing these state funds.”

“As an active member of the Granby Senior Center, I can attest to how integral this facility is to community development and engagement,” Rep. Mark Anderson said. “These renovations will go a long way in making sure that the monthly breakfasts, and other activities, have quality refreshments. I know our great staff will be eager to utilize the updated facility.”

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