New London promotes one of its own to grants coordinator position
New London — The city announced on Tuesday it has promoted Adriana Reyes to fill the vacant grants coordinator position.
Reyes has been working in the City Clerk’s Office, where she serves as the assistant registrar of vital statistics, since 2016. Previously, Reyes worked as a school secretary and translator.
Reyes will work within the Office of Development and Planning in the area of grants coordination and development, with a focus on seeking and obtaining new grant sources and funding opportunities for the city, according to a statement from the city. She replaces Elizabeth Nocera, who recently was hired as the city’s economic development coordinator.
Most recently, Reyes has been working to assist small businesses in obtaining grant funding and financial relief information during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We’re fortunate to have someone with Adriana’s work ethic and technical experience taking on this important role,” said Felix Reyes, director of the Office of Development and Planning, who is not related to Adriana Reyes. “I am confident she will excel as the new grants coordinator.”
Reyes attended New London Public Schools and is a student at Three Rivers Community College. She lives in New London with her husband and five children.
