Upstate Cerebral Palsy and Upstate Caring Partners are getting a boost from the state to make renovations and repairs, state Sen. Joseph Griffo announced Friday.
The $400,000 comes from the State and Municipal Facilities Program, and it will be used to make renovations and repairs at their facilities in Utica, Rome and Chadwicks.
The work will include:
- Upgrading security systems
- Replacing classroom floors, doors and catch basins
- Installing, servicing and upgrading HVAC control and fire detection systems
- Roofing upgrades
“There’s a number of organizations that are vying for these type of funds that comes under State and Municipal Facilities capital, and it’s very limited when you look at the non-for-profit industry,” Griffo said. “So we identify important, worthy projects and then go and advocate, and we're fortunate to receive support and to have been able to allocate this.”
Griffo says the work is expected to start in early 2019, and it will be spread out over the course of about a year.
