NORWICH — In late May, U.S. Rep. Marc Molinaro (NY-19) visited the City of Norwich after securing $1,250,000 to replace the city's sanitary sewer system.

According to Rep. Molinaro's office, the city had requested the funding as part of the Community Project Funding program, and Molinaro advocated for the funds to be included in the recently passed bipartisan Fiscal Year 2024 appropriations bill.

The funds are part of $27,625,000 in federal dollars designated for community development projects in the 19th Congressional District.

“I’m proud to report that $27.6 million is now coming back to upstate New York for community development projects that will improve roadways and water infrastructure, provide housing to veterans, expand mental health care, and help EMS agencies upgrade equipment and facilities," said Molinaro. "From the start, I’ve been arguing for more give and take, and more bipartisanship in government funding negotiations. The end result is the product of the good governing approach I’ve advocated for. This bill is smart, fiscally sensible, and doesn’t include any of the deep cuts or restrictions that I stood against.”
