Area Projects Among Winners of Regional Economic Development

 Council Awards


Senator Nozzolio today announced that 25 job creation and community development projects in the 54th Senate District will receive critically important state funds through the second round of Regional Economic Development Council awards.


“This is tremendous news as these projects will strengthen our local economy and help create and retain jobs,” Senator Nozzolio said.  “Our community leaders serving on the Regional Economic Development Council have worked hard to put together an job development strategy that takes advantage of the tremendous resources, skills and talent in our area. I applaud Governor Cuomo and Lieutenant Governor Duffy for this successful initiative that is spurring job growth and building a stronger economy for the future of the Finger Lakes Region and all New York State.”


Governor Andrew M. Cuomo said, "For the second year in a row, the Regional Councils have been on the forefront of rebuilding New York State's economy. For too many years, top-down economic development policies have failed communities across the state and not truly invested in the unique resources and strengths of each of New York's regions. Now a new, bottom-up approach is in place that brings local communities together to chart their own economic destiny. The second round of Regional Economic Development Council awards will deliver funding for critical projects and investments in communities across our state, helping put New Yorkers back to work and rebuilding our economy."
