National Grid presents Herkimer Housing Authority with funds

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - Last summer, the Herkimer Housing Authority was under seven feet of water.

Since those floods, $750,000 worth of work has been done to get the facility back up and running. On Monday, those renovations were unveiled and National Grid presented the housing authority with a check for $50,000 to help offset some of the cost of repairs.

The money is from National Grid's Mohawk Valley Emergency Economic Development Program.

"This is something that our company has reached out to the constituents and businesses to help them rebuild and to become a stronger community," said John Fiume, Niagara Mohawk Manager of Customer Management.

In addition to National Grid's assistance, the Housing Authority received funding from New York State and the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
