Waddington receives $2.25 million as part of NY Forward grant program
The Village of Waddington has received $2.25 million as part of the NY Forward grant program. NY Forward, similar to the state’s Downtown Revitalization Initiative, aims to assist smaller and rural communities with “equitable downtown recovery.”
"The NY Forward award will be a game changer for Waddington, and build on the incredible work that local residents and business owners have done for years. As Mayor of Waddington, I am grateful to Governor Hochul and her clear commitment to rebuilding and strengthening the economy, not only in Waddington but throughout the North Country. Our successful application would not have been possible without the hard work of the small committee of local residents who created the draft. Their commitment to community, innovative thought, and cooperative work in completing this application is just one example of the generosity and volunteerism that makes Waddington such a special place,” Mayor Mike Zagrobelny said.
