FLX Colleges Receive Grants for Infrastructure Projects


Over $60 million state in funding is going to private colleges and universities in New York.

Through the Education Capital Matching Grant Program, 30 not-for-profit schools will make infrastructure improvements to their facilities.

In the Finger Lakes, Cornell University will get $4,774,436 for renovations to its library’s basement and first floor; Hobart and William Smith will receive $650,787 for renovations and upgrades to nine residence halls, and Keuka College will get $171,025 to renovate its Space and Saunders residence halls.

Regional awardees include SU, Le Moyne, and Nazareth colleges.

“New York’s colleges and universities are second to none, and thanks to more than $60 million in state capital funding, we are making transformative renovations at top schools across the state so that they can continue to raise the bar,” Governor Hochul said. “From the purchase of cutting-edge scientific equipment to overhauling libraries and student centers, these investments will take our institutions to the next level and ensure that students pursuing higher education in New York State have access to the very best resources and facilities.”

As part of the grant program, campuses are required to invest at least three dollars of their own funds for every one dollar received from the state.
