MASS. - The Baker-Polito Administration announced its Fiscal Year 2022 Capital Plan on Monday, a $2.655 billion plan with prioritized investments in housing, transportation, climate resiliency, health and human services, and education.
“As Massachusetts emerges from the pandemic, our FY22 Capital Plan aims to strengthen and modernize infrastructure throughout the Commonwealth in ways that promote opportunity,” said Gov. Charlie Baker. “These meaningful investments will encourage economic growth and strengthen existing initiatives around housing, climate resiliency, health and human services, and food security – critical priorities that have proven even more important as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.”
Five-year capital investment plan highlights include nearly $6 million allotted for the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office to renovate Building 8 Warehouse and to replace the medical and intake unit.
“We are continuing to invest in local cities and towns in order to support the ongoing recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito. “By providing capital funding for education, public safety, information technology, and other infrastructure projects, we can help reinvigorate the economy and ensure Massachusetts has a bright and prosperous future.”
