Assemblyman Brian Curran announced that he has secured a $30,000 State and Municipal Facilities (SAM) grant for the village of Lynbrook. Curran worked with Mayor Alan Beach throughout the application process to ensure successful acquisition of these state funds, which will be used for the Merrick Road gateway construction project.
“It was a pleasure working with Mayor Beach to obtain these funds for the village of Lynbrook,” said Curran. “The grant money will be used exclusively for Lynbrook and will help offset the costs of the Merrick Road gateway project. This is why I go to Albany every year, to help improve our local community by fighting for our needs.”
“I would like to thank Assemblyman Brian Curran for securing this $30,000 grant for Lynbrook and the ongoing support he provides the village of Lynbrook,” said Mayor Alan Beach.
The $30,000 grant comes on the heels of a $50,000 MULTI-MODAL grant Curran obtained for the village in 2017 to reconstruct Oak Street and improve drainage, and a $100,000 SAM grant in 2015 to upgrade pathways in Greis Park. SAM grants provide additional funding for local capital improvement projects, while MULTI-MODAL grants provide additional funding for local transportation capital improvement projects.
