They will award up to an additional $245,000, if the town doesn’t receive additional funding on the east side of the river. The town is awaiting the Federal funding meeting for the BIG grant that covers the 150’ on the east side of the river, north of the bridge. The RBF (state) grant is for approximately 50 feet north of the end of the 150’ of the BIG grant. It is for erosion control. The town has received this award.
