Late this summer, the Suffield Board of Selectmen announced that APRA (American Rescue Plan Act) funds would be available to non-profits for the use of restoration or maintenance of the Town’s historical buildings and assets.
FOFAH made application and was awarded $25,000 this Fall. The funds were put towards the Big White Dairy Barn Painting Project. If you visit Hilltop Farm, you will notice the barn has been restored to its historical glory. FOFAH appreciates the Town of Suffield’s commitment to the preservation of the region’s historical buildings.
Other receptions of ARPA funds are CT Landmarks- Phelps-Hathaway House, Friends of the Windsor Locks Canal Trail, The West Suffield Village Center Association, Suffield Historical Society and the Kent Memorial Foundation.
