Malta Welcomes Grant Applications and Sets Public Meetings

MALTA — On Monday, Saratoga County District Attorney Karen Heggen and former town supervisor David Meager informed the Malta Town Board that new applications are being accepted from community groups in need of funding.

In the last 16 years, Heggen explained, the nonprofit GlobalFoundries-Town of Malta Foundation has provided a total of nearly $750,000 to support the activities and programs made popular by dozens of local community groups.

Heggen said $150,000 in grant money is available in the current round, which has an application deadline of October 27. Since 2013, the amounts distributed each year to community groups have surpassed $100,000.

“We look forward to new applications,” Heggen told the board, noting how this year’s winners will be announced in December. She encouraged interested applicants to visit the foundation’s website: https://sites.google.com/site/gfmaltafoundationorg/home.   

Heggen and Meager both serve on the Malta foundation’s board of directors.

It is considered separate from the GlobalFoundries-Town of Stillwater Foundation, yet both nonprofits were established with a $5 million contribution made by the company as part of its Fab 8 microchip-manufacturing plant in Malta.

In other business on August 7, the three Malta town board members who were present voted to set the date of a workshop for sign and lighting code amendments; it will coincide with two public hearings for “Chapter 143 lot line alterations” and another regarding a “local law to abolish elective office of Receiver of Taxes.”

All three subjects will be discussed on Monday, August 21, starting at 5:30 p.m. in the Malta town complex, followed by the regular town board meeting.
