First Light Power's parent co. answers Candlewood funding question

U.S. Senator Chris Murphy has heard back from the parent company of First Light Power about funding changes to the Candlewood Lake Authority.  GDF Suez wrote this week that there was a significant deliberation process held before deciding on a competitive grant program. 

 

First Light, in making an 80-percent reduction to funds for the CLA, said it wants to distribute an equal amount of funds to the 23 town Housatonic River region.  GDF Suez wrote to Murphy that they believe it will have a greater positive impact on the communities around Candlewood Lake. 

 

The company continued by explaining that the grant program requires organizations to described how they will use the funding so that First Light can have a better accounting of how the money is used and what the benefits are.
