of the villages of Cayuga, Union Springs, and Aurora

 Joint DRI Application for 2023 available here

Help Revitalize Cayuga County's Quaint Lakeside Village Corridor!

Cayuga, Union Springs, and Aurora are working together to implement a $10 Million Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI) award from New York State. The DRI program will fund a wide variety of private and public projects, including interior and exterior building renovation, business expansion, public infrastructure, and more. The purpose of the DRI is to reinvest in New York's underutilized historic downtowns and villages, and transform them into vibrant centers once again.

The villages will be accepting proposals for projects soon to include in the Strategic Investment Plan to implement the DRI award. Stay tuned for updates and an announcement for the open call for projects later this spring.

No matter how big or small your project is, if you have an idea for improving your business or property, we want to hear from you!
