Help Revitalize Cayuga County's Quaint Lakeside Village Corridor

Cayuga, Union Springs, and Aurora are working together to apply for two New York grant opportunities - the NY Forward and Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI) programs. Both programs fund a wide variety of private and public projects, including interior and exterior building renovation, business expansion, public infrastructure, and more. The purpose of these programs is to reinvest in New York's underutilized historic downtowns and villages, and transform them into vibrant centers once again.

The villages are now accepting proposals for projects to include in their applications. 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!
