$40 million awarded in Round 4 of Restore NY Communities Initiative

Staff Writer |
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced nearly $40 million awarded to 75 municipalities through Round 4 of the Restore New York Communities Initiative.

Restore NY supports municipal revitalization efforts across the state, helping to reinvigorate downtowns and generate economic opportunity in communities from Western New York to Long Island.

Governor Cuomo enacted the Restore New York Communities Initiative in the FY16 State Budget and designated Empire State Development to implement the program.

Round 4 launched in June 2016. Cities, towns and villages were all eligible to apply for support for projects that include demolition, deconstruction, rehabilitation, or reconstruction of vacant, abandoned, condemned and surplus properties.
