Great Neck, NY - February 18th, 2016 - The Great Neck Water Pollution Control District (GNWPCD) recently announced the District was awarded a grant of $50,000 from the Nassau County Community Revitalization Program. The grant is to pursue construction projects enabling the District’s administration building at 236 East Shore Road to be ADA compliant.

“The District would like to thank the Nassau County Community Revitalization Program and Legislator Ellen Birnbaum for working to secure this grant on behalf of District residents,” said Great Neck Water Pollution Control District Commissioner Deena Lesser.

“Thanks to Legislator Birnbaum’s contributions, we will be able to make sure the District’s public building is able to accommodate the physical needs of all District residents.”

The grant will fund the reconstruction to the District’s administration building, including the addition of a concrete ramp to make the building handicap accessible.
