ALBANY, N.Y. (WBNG) — The annual New York State Regional Economic Development Council (REDC) awards were announced in Albany Tuesday.

The Southern Tier was awarded $65.4 million for projects in 2019, which is the second lowest amount given out of the state’s ten regions.

In Broome County, funding will go toward numerous projects including a new veterans complex in Conklin, a LUMA Waterways Mist Projection and a study to help fix problems at the Endicott Water Pollution Control Plant.

In Tioga County, Owego’s Wastewater Treatment Plant is getting a $1 million boost. Additionally, the county will receive more than $210,000 to provide Tioga County centralized IT services to the towns of Barton and Owego, and the villages of Waverly and Nichols.

In Chenango County, a quarter-million dollars will help expand the JD Granary Organic Feed Mill. The Town of Pitcher will get nearly $108,000 to construct a covered salt storage structure behind the town hall and highway garage.

In Delaware County, nearly $600,000 will help to replace aging water mains in the town of Hancock. In Sidney, the village will prepare a Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP) to guide resilient and sustainable growth along its Susquehanna waterfront and downtown.
