Kuster Talks Economic Development, Affordable Housing Projects in Bethlehem
Bethlehem, August 18, 2022
Bethlehem, N.H. — Today, Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02) joined local leaders in Bethlehem to hear about the ‘Bethlehem Reimagined’ project, a comprehensive plan to bring new Main Street storefronts and second-floor housing to the community. During the visit, Kuster highlighted a $500,000 EPA Brownfields Clean-Up Grant, made possible by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, for the town to clean up the site of the old Sinclair Hotel and address the environmental and safety concerns on the lot.
“Bethlehem has so much to offer Granite State families and out-of-town visitors, from its rich history and local attractions to its direct access to the iconic White Mountains,” said Rep. Kuster. “I was pleased to see the town receive a significant grant from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to help clean up and rehabilitate the Sinclair lot and, like the name of the project says, reimagine all that Bethlehem can be. I look forward to seeing the positive impact of this project, and I will continue working to strengthen our state and our communities.”
Kuster is an outspoken advocate for New Hampshire’s northern towns and communities, consistently fighting for what matters most to Granite State families. She played a critical role in passing the historic bipartisan infrastructure package and delivering much-needed funding and resources to New Hampshire to expand access to broadband, bolster water infrastructure, rebuild roads and bridges, and so much more.
