A Shelburne housing project is getting a $1.35 million federal community development block grant.
The grant will help develop 78 units of family and senior housing.
The money is part of $2.2 million in Community Development Block Grants that were announced yesterday by Governor Peter Shumlin.
The funding is for affordable housing and economic development projects in six Vermont communities.
The grant money will be used to help obtain more than $20 million in other public and private resources.
Other communities getting funding from the grants are Peru, the city of Barre, Saxtons River Village, St. Johnsbury and the city of Newport.
