Union County Board of County Commissioners Award 2024 Infrastructure Grants to All 21 Municipalities

Last night at the Union County Board of County Commissioners meeting, the Commissioners awarded a total of $1,500,000.00 to the County’s twenty-one municipalities for the 2024 Union County Infrastructure and Municipal Aid grant program.

“We are so happy to continue supporting the growth and development of our communities through the Union County Infrastructure and Municipal Aid grant program,” said Commissioner Chairwoman Kimberly Palmieri-Mouded. “These funds represent our commitment to investing in projects that enhance the quality of life for our residents, and we are excited to see the positive impact they will have.”

Representatives from all 21 municipalities in Union County submitted videos to accept the check and share what they will do with the funds. A variety of revitalization projects are expected to be undertaken with the funds – however, road improvements are on the top of the list.

“As Chair of the Fiscal Committee, I am proud of the diligent work put into allocating these funds effectively,” said Commissioner Rebecca Williams. “This grant program stands as a testament to our dedication to responsible fiscal management, ensuring that our municipalities have the resources they need to tackle vital infrastructure projects and strengthen local economies.”

The Infrastructure grant program is aimed at providing assistance that will stimulate the development of public projects of economic, social, transportation and governmental importance to local municipalities. The Infrastructure and Municipal Aid grant is a matching grant and will assist municipalities with projects being undertaken in the 2024 calendar year.

The program was created by Commissioner Christopher Hudak in 2015, developed by the County Commissioner’s Fiscal Committee and administered by the Department of Economic Development.  This year’s Commissioner Fiscal Committee included: Commissioner Rebecca Williams as the Chair, Vice-Chairwoman Commissioner Lourdes Leon, Commissioner Sergio Granados and Commissioner Alexander Mirabella.

Funding for the grant is provided through the proceeds from the sale of Runnells Specialized Hospital in 2014.

Total Award Amount – $1,500,000.00
