State grant awarded for housing, downtown


Bridgewater and Norwood were jointly awarded Community Development Block Grants by the state, part of $31 million allotted to cities and towns to support housing rehabilitation, public service projects, and local infrastructure. Bridgewater’s share of the grant was $85,000, and officials plan to use $50,000 to complete a community development master plan for the downtown, and $35,000 to provide no-interest loans to low- and moderate-income residents to upgrade their homes, according to Town Planner Greg Guimond. The town will ask the Community Preservation Committee to recommend appropriating $35,000 from Bridgewater’s community preservation fund to match the federal money allotted for the home rehabilitation program.
