Andrea Reynosa, the president of TSP, said the grant applied for through the consolidated funding application process, in which local grants are applied for through the Mid-Hudson Regional Council, is for $162,000, which represents 20% of the acquisition cost of the school and the acreage with the ball field on Kirk Road.

Jennifer Grossman, a lawyer and vice-president of TSP and a resident of Livingston Manor, said that negotiations with the Sullivan West School District over the purchase of the facility are ongoing. She also said the organization is aggressively seeking funding not only from grants, but also private investors, and seeking anchor tenants that might be interested in setting up shop in the facility.
