The NYPA board also approved $30 million to fund Reimagine initiative projects in 2020 as part of the five year plan, which also aims to enhance irrigation, restore wetlands and expand recreational fishing opportunities.

Details and spending for each project will be finalized as the projects are designed and developed in collaboration with local community stakeholders.
