Nearly 30 projects impacting arts, culture and STEM education will be funded through Oneida County's Partners in Prosperity Funding.

The funding was allocated in the 2015 county budget and comes from the county’s settlement with the Oneida Indian Nation.

County Executive Anthony Picente says the county has chosen to fund 28 projects, 10 in STEM education and 18 in arts and culture, with help from the Community Foundation of Herkimer and Oneida Counties.

Picente says the county budget allocated $830,00 in grant funding and the Community Foundation expanded the arts and culture investment by $135,000.

Among the organizations receiving funding include the Mohawk Valley Center for Refugees, Sculpture Space, the Landmarks Society of Greater Utica and the Kirkland Arts Center.

Public safety and infrastructure are also benefiting from Partners In Prosperity Funding
