WASHINGTON, DC — Today, Congressman Mondaire Jones (D-NY) submitted funding requests for 10 important community projects in New York’s 17th Congressional District to the House Appropriations Committee. As part of the FY2022 federal appropriations process, the Community Project Funding program is an opportunity for projects that benefit the communities in Westchester and Rockland Counties to receive direct federal funding. While Jones submitted these requests to the Appropriations Committee, it is up to the committee to determine which programs ultimately receive federal funding. 
"I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve submitted funding requests for 10 incredible community projects,” said Congressman Mondaire Jones. “From Port Chester to Spring Valley, these projects span our congressional district and are integral to our communities. Just as our communities have served and supported the federal government, it’s the government’s turn to help them, and that’s exactly what this Community Project Funding would do.”
Jones submitted funding requests for the following community-based projects:
  • New Center of Excellence for Women's Health at Refuah Health Center (Spring Valley, NY)
  • West Nyack Revitalization (Clarkstown, NY)
  • Village Hall Boiler Replacement (Port Chester, NY)
  • Relocation and Rehabilitation of Piermont Village Hall (Piermont, NY)
  • Dunbar Kitchen Modernization Project (Peekskill, NY)
  • NYS Rt. 100B – Dobbs Ferry Road Sidewalk Project (Greenburgh, NY)
  • Community Green Development (Spring Valley, NY)
  • Capital Improvements to the YWCA’s North Street Activity Center (White Plains, NY)
  • Rockland County Pride Center Outpatient Diagnostic and Treatment Facility (Nyack, NY)
  • Hallocks Mill Sewer Extension Project, Phase 1, Final Engineering Design (Yorktown, NY)

Village Hall Boiler Replacement

Intended Recipient: Village of Port Chester, 222 Grace Church Street, Port Chester, NY 10573

Requested Amount: $250,000

The funding will be used to provide a clean, cost-effective alternative for traditional heating and cooling by eliminating fossil fuels and reducing energy bills while also complementing New York State’s Clean Heat initiative and highlighting Port Chester as an exemplary partner within the community. A geothermal system is estimated to reduce electricity use by up to 50%. While traditional systems typically last between 15-20 years, a geothermal system can last up to 10 years longer. Reducing municipal utilities and annual operational costs has a direct positive impact on taxpayers and would allow the Village to reallocate that cost savings to other critical projects within the community.
