ALBION – The village has five grant applications out, totaling $776,175.

A Main Street grant for $289,415 tops the grant applications. That grant, through the NYS Office of Community Renewal, would help several building owners with improvements to historic downtown sites.

Albion expects to hear in December if the application was approved.

The Village Board on Wednesday reviewed a summary of grant applications prepared by J O’Connell & Associates, the village’s grant consultant.

Other grant applications include:

• $267,110 to FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) to replace pagers.

• $125,000 through the U.S. Department of Justice for the COPS hiring program.

• $53,350 through the State and Municipal Facilities Program for a rescue boat and trailer.

• $41,300 from the NYS Department of Conservation for a tree inventory and community forest management plan.
