East Granby has been awarded a Small Town Economic Assistance Program (STEAP) grant for the recreational facility upgrades at East Granby Farms. The $500,000 in state funding will help upgrade the town’s recreation area for guests and visitors. Additionally, East Granby will match the grant with $325,000 in town funds.

“This is such great news for East Granby! Congratulations to everyone involved in working with East Granby Parks and Recreation and the Town of East Granby on this award, which we are confident will be put to great use,” Rep. Tami Zawistowski said. “The combined effort of state and local leaders to make this generous grant a reality is a testament to the importance that East Granby Farms has for our community and visitors to our great town. We are confident that this grant will provide new recreational opportunities for our area and provide conveniences for those who play sports, hike and attend events there. It is equally important that this grant goes to increase access to nature-based recreation in this wonderful park. This is a clear investment in all of East Granby and I want to thank the governor and his team as well for their consideration of this project and its impact.”
