Keene Sentinel: Hinsdale housing park receives grant
HINSDALE — A local manufactured housing park has been awarded a federal grant to help fund the repair of its water system.
The Oak Hill Acres Cooperative will received $11,250 from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Pre-Development Planning Grant program, U.S. Rep. Ann M. Kuster, D-Nashua, announced Friday. The grant will go toward repairing the park’s failing water distribution system, she said in a news release.
The park’s water system is more than 40 years old and is in need of an upgrade, Shawna Shingler, financial coordinator for Oak Hill Acres, said.
“You can imagine the state that it’s in,” she said, adding that the funding is an important boost for residents of the community-owned park.
The $11,250 will be used to hire an engineer to conduct preliminary engineering and environmental reports for the project, according to the news release.
