BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) - Gov. Peter Shumlin has announced eight community development grants worth more than $2.8 million.

A $300,000 grant will be used in Brattleboro to replace a failed retaining wall, reopen a neighborhood street and restore parking spaces behind the historic Brooks House.

Shumlin said Tuesday that communities across Vermont will use the grants to create affordable housing, expand services to their residents, restore historic buildings and plan for economic development.

The grants will go toward moving a child care center out of a floodplain and expanding it in Tunbridge; developing affordable senior housing in Milton; and infrastructure improvements at mobile home park in Randolph.
