Governor Cuomo Announces Engineering Planning Grants
On December 11, Governor Cuomo announced awards for Round 3 of the Regional Economic Development Council (REDC) initiative that supports economic development, strategic plan implementation and job creation across New York State.
As part of Round 3 of the REDC initiative, DEC and the NYS Environmental Facilities Corporation awarded $1,888,890 to 63 communities from the Wastewater Infrastructure Engineering Planning Grants program. The Wastewater Infrastructure Engineering Planning Grants program provides up to $50,000 to each community to prepare an engineering report describing improvements to their municipal wastewater system. Each community will also provide at least a 20% match to their grant. The engineering reports will provide the basis for communities to begin securing funding for infrastructure projects.
A list of the Wastewater Infrastructure Engineering Planning Grant awards is available here. A complete list of grants awarded through the REDC initiative is on the REDC website.
