Brookfield LG MassWorks Grant 18OCT10 Lieutenant Governor Timothy P. Murray today awarded the Town of Brookfield a $500,000 MassWorks Infrastructure Program grant to help reconstruct portions of three roads within the town.

These funds will be used to reconstruct nearly two miles of Town Farm Road and sections of Gay Road and Rice Corner Road in Brookfield.  The roadway upgrades will address certain public safety issues by improving several limited sight areas and through the installation of drainage facilities to mitigate frequent flooding in an elderly community.  These investments in public infrastructure will put individuals to work immediately and will help unlock new economic development opportunities for the town by ensuring it is properly equipped to support new business growth.  The total project cost is estimated at $625,000, with the Town of Brookfield providing the remaining funding.

The Patrick-Murray Administration this year launched the MassWorks Infrastructure Program as a one-stop shop for municipalities seeking public infrastructure funding.  The program consolidates six existing infrastructure programs, each aimed at supporting job creation and economic development, to provide increased efficiency, service, and communication when cities and towns apply for infrastructure grants and resources.  This approach has reduced duplication, improved accountability, and provided for the most effective management of state resources.

The MassWorks Infrastructure Program consolidates six grant programs:  Public Works Economic Development Grant (PWED), Community Development Action Grant (CDAG), Growth District Initiative (GDI) Grant, Massachusetts Opportunity Relocation and Expansion Program (MORE), Small Town Rural Assistance Program (STRAP) and the Transit Oriented Development (TOD) Grant Program.
