Awards Announced

The winners in the Urban Revitalization Initiative, dubbed Cuomo's "Hunger Games," were announced this morning, and sadly the Capital Region, of which Columbia County is a part, was not one of three regions to receive $500 million--$100 million a year for the next five years--to fund its economic development projects. The three URI winners were the Finger Lakes, the Southern Tier, and Central New York. The Capital Region was, however, awarded $98.1 million in the Regional Economic Development Council program.
