Rep. Tenney Requests Funding for Keuka College Outpatient Clinic


15 projects, including several from the Finger Lakes, have been submitted to the House Appropriations Committee for consideration as part of the Community Project Funding process. Congresswoman Claudia Tenney, who submitted the projects, said the funding is fiscally targeted and limited in scope.

The CPF process allows localities and non-profits to submit federal funding requests for high-priority community projects with strong local support in New York’s 24th Congressional District. Congresswoman Tenney’s office received 110 requests from various applicants across the 24th District. Each application for funding was subjected to a rigorous review process to ensure, among other things, that it is a sound use of taxpayer dollars and that applicants have a clear and accountable plan to spend funds on targeted projects within a year

$1.6 million is being requested for the Keuka College Rural Community Outpatient Clinic.

“The challenges of access to quality health care in rural areas of New York State continue to increase in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Keuka College is located in an area with limited access to medical and therapy services. With support from Congress, and thanks to Rep. Tenney’s advocacy, our Rural Community Outpatient Clinic would enable the College to expand its existing healthcare services to serve the surrounding, underserved community,” said Amy Storey, President of Keuka College.

Projects selected by Congresswoman Tenney fall under three priority categories: (1) water infrastructure improvements; (2) support for essential public facility and service upgrades; and (3) promoting public safety. For any awards granted, Congresswoman Tenney and her office will oversee these projects and monitor federal funds to ensure they are used appropriately and efficiently in the best interests of the American taxpayers.

Other local projects funding was requested for:

  • $6,400,000 for the City of Canandaigua Water Plant;
  • $3,500,000 for Town of Farmington Brickyard Road Tank and Transmission Main Improvements;
  • $3,500,000 for the Town of Fayette Sewer District No. 1 and
  • $2,400,000 for the Town of Wolcott Salt Storage Barn

As part of last year’s FY23 CPF process, Tenney submitted 15 projects for consideration — all of the projects received funding totaling just over $30.7 million. Most of these projects have received the allocated funding and are now starting to provide community benefits.
