The Mohawk Valley will get $70,000 to promote economic development and job creation in the region.

The Economic Development Administration is awarding more than $200,000 across Upstate New York to establish a strategy to support private investment and job creation.

This funding process is designed to bring together the public and private sectors in the creation of an economic development roadmap to diversify and strengthen the regional economy.

Mohawk Valley: The grant is awarded to the Mohawk Valley Economic Development District, which comprises the counties of Fulton, Herkimer, Montgomery, Oneida, Otsego, and Schoharie.

“It is my hope that this grant funding will be instrumental in helping to strengthen public/private partnerships to create more jobs for upstate New Yorkers,” Congressman Richard Hanna said. “It can grow our local economies and create a strategy for keeping our neighbors working and our communities strong for years to come.”


Southern Tier: The grant is awarded to the Southern Tier East Regional Planning and Development Commission, which comprises the counties of Broome, Chenango, Cortland, Delaware, and Tioga.

Central New York: The grant is awarded to Central New York Regional Planning and Development Board, which comprises the counties of Cayuga, Cortland, Madison, Onondaga, and Oswego, and the city of Syracuse
