The city of Oneonta has received a Community Development Block Grant to help income-eligible residents replace lead pipes in their homes.
Gov. Kathy Hochul announced the funding as part of a media release that listed more than $33 million in Community Development Block Grant funding awarded to dozens of municipalities for local infrastructure improvement and housing rehabilitation projects. The grants are designed to help communities provide “decent affordable housing and safe living environments primarily for low- and moderate-income residents,” the release said.
Oneonta City Administrator Greg Mattice said in an email the $200,000 grant will help low-income homeowners in the city “replace privately-owned lead water services that have been identified by the city.” Owners of single-family homes or rental properties with two to four units are eligible to apply for the grant, he said.
