We Need Your Help to Compete for a Chance to Receive over $2 Million in Grants
Governor Hochul recently announced the creation of a new grant program (NY Forward) designed specifically to invigorate and enliven smaller downtowns located in villages, hamlets and neighborhood-scale municipal centers. Each of the State’s ten Regional Economic Development Councils (REDCs) will have $10 million in funding to award. Up to three communities in the Hudson Valley will receive grants ranging from $2.25 million to $4.5 million to revitalize their downtowns.
I think we can all agree that we are fortunate to live, work and play in this picturesque historic village. This grant would help us to invest in maintaining, preserving and enhancing that historic character. Please take the survey and let us know your vision for downtown Montgomery. Your answers will help us formulate and prioritize local projects that would enhance our Historic Downtown, and strengthen our NY Forward Grant Application. Grant applications are due next month, so please complete your responses by September 15, 2022.
