June 7th 2016 BOSTON – Representative David K. Muradian, Jr. (R-Grafton), along with State Senators Ryan C. Fattman (R-Webster) and Michael O. Moore (D-Millbury), are excited to announce that the town of Northbridge has been awarded a grant of $16,600 as part of the Community Compact IT Grant Program.
The Baker-Polito Administration established the Community Compact Cabinet shortly after taking office in order to further improve the Commonwealth. The Community Compact IT grant is a sector within this cabinet. Specifically, this grant program is considered very competitive throughout the Commonwealth. The funds received are expected to transform technologies at a local level. With this grant, Northbridge will have an opportunity to upgrade equipment, purchase software, and install new systems.
“The Community Compact IT grant will go a long way ensuring that Northbridge stays up to date with technological advances in the Commonwealth,” stated Representative Muradian. “I was extremely grateful to learn that our town received these funds, and I believe the people within the district will be equally as happy. I want to thank the Baker-Polito Administration for their continued dedication to ensure that all of our communities have adequate funding for their services.”
“As technology leaps forward, communities are continuously faced with the need to reevaluate and upgrade their technological systems in order to provide consistent and accessible services to local residents,” said Senator Michael O. Moore. “The Community Compact IT Grant will enable the Town of Northbridge to make the system user experience more straightforward, as well as to improve internal communication networks that would make work of government officials more efficient. While improving technological systems may not be something we think about each day, this funding will have a considerable impact on the delivery of government services to the residents of Northbridge.”
“We are very excited to see that Northbridge High School was awarded a grant from the Financial Education Innovation Fund. Holding ‘Credit for Life’ fairs help everyone learn more about responsible saving, spending, and budgeting. My office looks forward to working with other towns in our district to host ‘Credit for Life’ fairs of their own,” said Senator Ryan C. Fattman.
