Maloney Announces Community Development Projects

These project funding requests are designed to help lift up the district and establish a strong foundation for our continued economic recovery in the wake of COVID-19

Newburgh, NY – Today, Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) announced his community project selections. Adding essential community project funding to difficult, must-pass spending bills will help put an end to Washington gridlock and expand options for landmark legislation in the wake of COVID-19.

Congressman Maloney’s project priorities call on Congress to allocate nearly $14 million to clean water projects in the district, including nearly $12 million to the City of Middletown and $1.8 million for PFAS mitigation in Lewisboro. He has requested over $21 million for transportation and infrastructure community development projects, including $5.75 million for Newburgh alone.

In all, the Congressman has requested 11 projects totaling over $43 million for Orange County, 3 projects totaling over $4 million for Dutchess, 4 projects totaling nearly $14 million for Putnam, and 2 projects for Westchester totaling over $2 million dollars.

“I’ve hosted 177 town halls since coming to Congress and had hundreds of meetings with local officials – from both sides of the aisle – so I’ve heard loud and clear what the needs are in our communities. Community Project Funding will allow me to use my first-hand understanding of the needs of our neighbors to help the people who sent us to Washington,” said Rep. Maloney. “This new, improved process will allow Congress to do what we were elected to do and utilize our knowledge and experience to thoughtfully direct federal funds to the projects and communities who need it most with transparency and accountability."

“We need all hands on deck to jumpstart our economy in the wake of COVID-19. These community development projects directly address some of the most urgent needs in Dutchess County and will help set us up for future success,” said Dutchess County Executive Marcus Molinaro. “These investments will enable us to improve Dutchess County for generations to come, and we thank Congressman Maloney for his continued advocacy and support.”

“This is a massive investment, and we’re thankful for Congressman Maloney’s advocacy on behalf of us here in Orange County,” said Orange County Executive Steven Neuhaus. “Each project is critical to our ability to progress into the future. They will enable us to revitalize and modernize our communities, while ensuring the improved safety of our residents.”

“These projects will enable Putnam County meet the growing transportation needs of residents in our community as our economy bounces back in the wake of COVID-19,” said Putnam County Executive MaryEllen Odell. “Hyper-local investments in our infrastructure are key to long-term economic success throughout this reopening.”
