USDA Rural Development has awarded a grant of $10,900 to the Village of Unadilla to remove and repair the roof on the community center/gym and to also replace and install new gutters on the building. The grant will be leveraged with $57,100 from the Village and $5,000 from the Unadilla Community Foundation.
“We were planning on a project that was going to cost the town about $20,000 and ended up with a project $73,000. A project this size is a big impact on a small town. With the help from the USDA we were able to apply for the grant and help bring that cost down. They were great to work with and we will definitely look towards the USDA for future projects here in our community.” said Danny Crownover, Village of Unadilla.
“USDA funds will be used to help make necessary improvements to the community center/gym to keep the structure sound,” said Community Programs Specialist Luann Brown, USDA Rural Development.
