ALBANY, N.Y. – The Mohawk Valley Economic Development District has received $400,000 in CARES Act federal relief funding from the Economic Development Administration.
Congressman Anthony Brindisi says these funds will be used for economic development projects, community assistance programs and coronavirus response efforts.
“Communities across Upstate New York are feeling the effects of the coronavirus pandemic and these grants will help give our district the tools we need to build back stronger and more resiliently,” said Brindisi. “I’m working with members of both parties and advocating for relief for our local governments so we can get back on our feet.”
The Southern Tier East Regional Planning Development Board also received $400,000 in funding.
