$2.25-Million Awarded to Moravia for Downtown Revitalization


The Village of Moravia will receive 2.25-million dollars from the state to support its downtown revitalization.

Moravia, along with the villages of Phoenix in Oswego County and Hamilton in Madison County, were selected as the Central New York Winners of the first round of the NY Forward Program which seeks to aid in downtown recovery efforts for smaller and rural communities.

 “The Village of Moravia is a close-knit community with a wealth of culture, history and pride. With sound planning principles and a transformative vision, our Village is poised to expand our offerings and become a tourism and social destination for the entire state. This NY Forward funding will help us to achieve our goals, and I thank Governor Hochul for her innovative approach to revitalizing downtowns in smaller communities like ours.”

“New York’s downtowns are the heart and soul of our communities and regions, and NY Forward will ensure that Phoenix, Moravia, and Hamilton have the resources they need to thrive and flourish,” Governor Hochul said. “This funding will revitalize these villages back to what the bustling areas they once were by making communities more walkable, creating new housing opportunities, and attracting businesses.”

Each village will now begin developing Strategic Investment Plans to revitalize their downtowns.
