Call for Projects Open for 3 Village DRI Funding


The call is open for projects to receive potential funding from three Cayuga County villages’ joint $10 million DRI Award.

The Cayuga, Union Springs, and Aurora Local Planning Committee is seeking project proposals for its strategic investment plan. Once complete, the plan will be reviewed by New York State to possibly receive funding.

The committee asks proposals to be sent in as soon as possible. All proposals must be received by noon on June 28.

A template for proposals can be found here.

A virtual information session will be held from 3:00-4:00p on Thursday. To attend the meeting, click here. The meeting will also be recorded for those who cannot attend.
