More Money for Economic Development

The 2017 Regional Economic Development Council Awards were announced this morning, and the Capital Region, of which Hudson is a part, was awarded $85 million, as a Top Performer. In the video about the Capital Region that preceded the announcement of the award, Hudson, as a Round 2 DRI recipient, along with Basilica Hudson and Melissa Auf der Maur, had a featured role. Exactly how much of that $85 million will fund projects in Hudson and Columbia County is not yet known--at least not by Gossips.

The other awards were:
  • Western New York, $68.8 million
  • Finger Lakes, $63.9 million
  • Southern Tier, $67.3 million
  • Central New York, $86.4 million (Top Performer)
  • Mohawk Valley, $85.5 million (Top Performer)
  • North Country, $64.9 million
  • Mid-Hudson, $84.8 million (Top Performer)
  • New York City, $64.8 million
  • Long Island, $84.3 million (Top Performer).
