9/19/2019 Corvese secures grant for Marieville Neighborhood Partnership
STATE HOUSE – Rep. Arthur Corvese has secured a legislative grant to help support the Marieville Neighborhood Partnership.

The $3,500 grant, which Representative Corvese recently delivered to the organization, will help the group carry out its mission of obtaining and maintaining open space and supporting the community.

“The Marieville Neighborhood Partnership is a wonderful example of residents working together to improve the neighborhood and build a stronger community in our town. There’s so much energy and commitment in this new organization, and I’m proud to support them in their very positive efforts to create places in North Providence where residents can work, play or relax together,” said Representative Corvese (D-Dist. 55, North Providence).

North Providence Town Council Members Ken Amoriggi and Stefano Famiglietti, who both helped start the Marieville Neighborhood Partnership, said they are excited about what the new group can do for the neighborhood and all of North Providence.

“It’s been a goal and a dream of ours for some time to bring the community together. This grant will help us grow as an organization. Ultimately, we would like to see the community group grow into a town-wide entity, or inspire others to come together and create their own community groups,” said Councilman Amoriggi, who serves as president of the partnership.

Councilman Famiglietti, who serves on the partnership’s Board of Directors, said, “It’s a very energetic group of people. What I’m hopeful for is, as we spread through Marieville and stretch the boundaries, that other people will be willing to join in the idea and help the community as well.”
