Grant Funding Awarded to Dundee VFW for Kitchen and Bar Work


The Dundee VFW will get more than $73,000 in grant funding to cover costs associated with the rehabilitation of the Post’s kitchen and bar areas. The funding was announced Monday as part of more than $40 million in capital grants awarded through the Nonprofit Infrastructure Capital Investment Program and the Veterans’ Nonprofit Capital Program.

Governor Kathy Hochul announced $1.13 million in awards to 18 veterans services organizations through the Veterans’ Nonprofit Capital Program. VNCP grants reimburse veterans organizations for capital improvement projects ranging from $25,000 to $75,000.  The program supports architecture, design, engineering, construction, reconstruction, rehabilitation, or expansion of an eligible facility, and the purchase of eligible furnishings or equipment. Projects supported by this program include new roofs, ADA-compliant upgrades, and kitchen and common area renovations among other welcomed improvements. A full list of awardees through this program is available here. The Goodrich-Smith Post No. 8649 Veterans of Foreign Wars, Inc., in Dundee, requested $73,171 in grant reimbursements.

The Governor also announced $39.6 million in awards to 118 human services organizations through the Nonprofit Infrastructure Capital Investment Program. NICIP, administered by the Dormitory Authority of New York State provides capital grants of up to $500,000 to empower nonprofits across the state to undertake projects that improve the delivery of critical services.  Several local human services organizations were awarded funding.  They include Moziac, Pro Action of Steuben and Yates, the Family Service Society, the Arc of Chemung-Schuyler, and the Salvation Army.  A full list of awardees through this program is available here.

“This round of funding will help organizations across our state continue to deliver critical services to the New Yorkers who need them – including veterans and families,” Governor Hochul said. “From transformative renovations to service facilities to basic upgrades that keep them running, these awards will help to bolster our nonprofit sector, strengthen communities, and ensure that New York families can stay connected to vital services.”
