I'm pleased to share that today, Brooklyn, Eastford, and Pomfret were selected to receive a total of $719,038.28 in state grants through the Small Town Economic Assistance Program for capital improvement projects. Funding for towns in the 50th House District breaks down as follows:


  • $299,038.28 for the Tatnic Road drainage improvement project. This will be matched by $55,000 from the town


  • $100,000 for improvements to Crystal Park. This will be matched by $25,000 from the town
  • $60,000 for improvements at Ivy Glenn Memorial. This will be matched by $15,000 from the town

  • $200,000 for the completion of the solid waste disposal facility. This will be matched by $58,000 from the town

These funds will support key upgrades to our outdoor spaces, the Pomfret Public Library, and Tatnic Road to improve public safety and enhance the quality of life for residents in these small towns. Thank you to Governor Lamont for choosing to invest in Connecticut’s Quiet Corner and for supporting our state’s small municipalities.
