"Dear Town Administrator Colton:
I am pleased to inform you that the Department of Energy Resources (DOER) Green Communities Division has approved an award of $250,000 for the following projects proposed in the Town of Easton’s Green Communities Competitive Grant application:
• $42,255 Insulated garage doors
• $207,745 LED streetlight project
The Division reviewed the Town’s grant application and has determined that these are viable, well developed projects that meet the eligibility requirements of our Competitive Grant program. Please note that, due to the competitive nature of this grant program, the use of these funds is restricted to the specifically approved projects listed above. Please be advised that, in the event that a funded project does not move forward, DOER will rescind the funding for that project and said funding may not be applied to other work.
In the next few weeks, Jane Pfister, Green Communities Grants Coordinator, will follow up with the designated contact listed in your grant application to discuss next steps, including coordination of the grant contract process.
The Green Communities Division looks forward to working with the Town of Easton on your grant projects. We congratulate you on this grant award, and applaud your efforts to create a greener energy future for your community and for the Commonwealth as a whole."
