The target areas for this round of NYS Main Street Grant will include Chenango Street between Court Street and Henry Street, Henry Street between Chenango and State Street, and State Street between Henry and Lewis Street. The BLDC received the grant through New York State Housing Trust Fund Corporation’s Office of Community Renewal (NYSOCR), as part of the State’s Consolidated Funding Application engineered under Governor Cuomo to allow more efficient reallocation of state resources for local community development through input from regional councils. The BLDC’s grant program assisted property owners in their efforts to improve and preserve the visual image of the City’s downtown historic mixed-use districts through commercial façade improvements as well as new and modified interior residential and commercial development. $15,000 of these grant funds were allocated for a Streetscape Project to improve the area known as “Commercial Alley” running from Court Street to the State Street parking ramp.
