PSEG-LI has awarded the Huntington YMCA a $75,000 Main Street Revitalization grant to fund the electrical infrastructure of its Jorge Family Healthy Living Center.
“We are extremely grateful to PSEG Long Island for its tremendous support of the Jorge Family Healthy Living Center through this generous grant,” said Eileen Knauer, senior vice president and chief operating officer of the YMCA of Long Island. “This state-of-the-art facility has been a wonderful resource to the Greater Y community, and the electrical infrastructure is vital to make it all possible.”
The PSEG Long Island Main Street Revitalization Program is designed to encourage economic vitality of a business district and to optimize the use of existing electric infrastructure. The program offers financial incentives for projects expected to improve the economic stability and growth of a business community.
The 30,000 square foot facility, which opened in July, supports the Y’s overall mission to provide programs that build a healthy body, mind and spirit. The facility offers community members access to group fitness classes, with more than 100 classes per week, recreational sports, chronic disease prevention and recovery programs, and enrichment programs for children and adults.
“PSEG Long Island has a long-standing relationship with the YMCA. We have partnered on many programs for seniors and children in our communities,” said John Keating, manager of economic development for PSEG Long Island. “The new Healthy Living Center is already making a significant impact on improving the lives of people in Huntington and the surrounding areas with expanded programs, a state-of-the-art gym facility and other amenities. We are proud to provide the Y with this $75,000 Main Street Revitalization grant.”
