Grants to Support Recreation, Economic Growth and Environmental Protection
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced nearly $400,000 in smart growth grant awards for six Adirondack Park communities. The Governor announced these Environmental Protection Fund-supported grants to Adirondack municipalities and not-for-profit organizations as part of the Adirondack Park Local Government Day.
“The Adirondack Park is one of the best examples of natural beauty anywhere in the world with high peaks and forests that attract thousands of visitors to this North County gem each year,” Governor Cuomo said. “These grants will build upon this success, helping to strengthen the local economy and ensuring the park remains a vibrant destination for decades to come.”
Smart growth grants are administered by the Department of Environmental Conservation and support local plans and projects geared toward community and economic development that fit within and complement the region’s natural resources. The awarded projects demonstrate how Adirondack communities can grow using the unique natural assets of the Park combined with improved technology, attractions and infrastructure to bring in new businesses and citizens.
