BELFAST – An area arts center received a grant to help with renovations on its 84-year-old home.
Waterfall Arts, which is located in the former Anderson Elementary School, has received a $420,000 grant from the Environmental Protection Agency — $350,000 of which comes directly from the EPA and $70,000 of which is in matches from Waterfall Arts.
Gianne Conard, president of the Waterfall Arts board, said the grant comes at a perfect time and will help with much-needed repairs.
“It’s going to replace the roof, there’s going to be work with the windows. They will actually become energy efficient windows. There’s some plumbing work that goes into it and these are all very important infrastructure pieces of work that need to be done with the building as we’re going toward our sustainable future,” Conard said.
Waterfall Arts offers such resources as space for art classes, exhibitions and performances.
