Assemblyman Brian Curran announced that he has secured a $25,000 MULTI-MODAL grant for the Village of Malverne. Curran worked with Mayor Patricia Ann Norris-McDonald throughout the application process to ensure successful acquisition of these state funds, which will be used to improve drainage of local streets within the boundaries of the incorporated village and to replace signage.
“It was a pleasure working with Mayor Norris-McDonald to obtain these funds for the village of Malverne,” said Curran. “The grant money will be used exclusively for Malverne and will help offset the costs of improving drainage for local streets and replace signage throughout the village. This is why I go to Albany every year, to help improve our local community by fighting for our needs.”
“The village of Malverne is extremely grateful for Assemblyman Curran’s continued support in securing grants to fund many important projects within our village,” said Mayor Patricia Ann Norris-McDonald. “Assemblyman Curran has always been a friend to the village of Malverne not only assisting financially, but with his presence at countless village events and celebrations.”
The $25,000 grant comes on the heels of a $100,000 State and Municipal Facilities (SAM) grant Curran obtained for the village in 2017 to upgrade walkways in Westwood Park. SAM grants provide additional funding for local capital improvement projects, while MULTI-MODAL grants provide additional funding for local transportation capital improvement projects.
