Senator Stewart-Cousins secured a $100,000 capital grant from New York State to renovate the ArtsWestchester headquarters in White Plains. The national historic landmark in downtown White Plains was buit in 1928, and is owned by ArtsWestchester. The grant allowed the organization to upgrade the perimeter heating units and install of new roofing, sprinklers, energy efficient lighting and smoke detectors.

“I am pleased to be able to assist in the upgrading of this exciting arts center in the heart of White Plains,” says Senator Stewart-Cousins, adding, “Not only does this grant improve the facility, but it adds years to a building that without ArtsWestchester may have fallen victim to abandonment and deterioration.”
