Côte-Nord projects recommended for federal funding
BEVERLY, MA – Mental health support, as well as public and alternative transportation and infrastructure programs, were among the 17 Côte-Nord projects proposed for up to $ 40 million in federal funds.
U.S. Representative Seth Moulton (D-Salem) released his list of nominations for the state’s 6th Congressional District ownership on Friday.
Moulton’s office said project requests fall into two types: community project funding, which are projects he has sent to the House appropriations committee, and member-nominated projects, which are sent to the House transport and infrastructure committee.
Moulton is a member of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.
“My team and I have reviewed a long list of applications for community project funding to provide resources where they will have the greatest impact on the ground in Massachusetts,” said Moulton. “We are moving these projects forward in the process to achieve some of my main goals: to make traffic easier, give people more freedom and options to move beyond cars, and address the chronic lack of mental health care. .
The community funding project is part of the community funding program adopted this year by the House of Representatives. Although members submit applications, funding for proposed projects has yet to be approved by Congress, and organizations here are not guaranteed funding at this time.
