Town of New Windsor receives $330,420 grant for cemetery

New Windsor, NY – The Town of New Windsor has received a $330,420 grant from the New York State Department of State Division of Cemeteries for headstone repair at the town owned Woodlawn Cemetery.

This substantial grant will fully fund the repair of over 450 monuments that are dilapidated or in a state of disrepair.

Last April the town took over ownership of Woodlawn Cemetery, which is located in the heart of the town, from a private cemetery association that had failed financially. Since that time the town has invested in bringing the cemetery standards back up and working to make substantial improvements. This $330,420 grant is the first in what is hoped to be several grant funded projects.

The work on the headstone project is slated to begin this summer and will be completed within 90 days.

Town Supervisor George Green stated, “New Windsor is proud to be restoring Woodlawn Cemetery to pay proper respect to those who are buried in these hallowed grounds. This is a major grant for us to receive and will ensure each and every headstone in need of repair will receive it. I would like to thank Chief-of-Staff Colin Schmitt for spearheading this entire effort and working to make sure New Windsor Woodlawn Cemetery is a place of dignity and respect for all.”

Chief-of-Staff Colin Schmitt stated, “We would like to thank the Division of Cemeteries for authorizing us for such a substantial grant award. New Windsor Woodlawn Cemetery is an active 74 acre cemetery. Our cemetery is a place of dignity and respect for those who have passed on. A place for families and friends to remember loved ones and those who have built our community. This grant is just another step New Windsor is taking to ensure that Woodlawn Cemetery is a perpetual place of somber remembrance.”
