Picente Announces Projects Chosen For Partners In Prosperity Funding
Thirty-five projects impacting arts, culture and STEM education will be funded through the Partners In Prosperity Funding allocated in the 2015 Oneida County budget.
County Executive Anthony Picente says a total of 55 proposal were submitted.
Picente says in an effort to meet and fund a larger number of the requests, the Community Foundation of Herkimer and Oneida Counties has partnered with the county to expand the $330,000 arts and culture investment by $135,000.
Ten STEM education projects were funded.
Project specifics will be identified at a later date.
The Partners In Prosperity funding comes from the county's settlement with the Oneida Indian Nation.
