The city of Hudson is one of 10 winners in a statewide competition for $10 million downtown revitalization grants. This is the second year for the contest, which Governor Cuomo created to reinvigorate aging downtowns.
In a press event on Tuesday at Hudson’s Hudson Hall, Cuomo said the grants are awarded to communities that already are growing, show promise, evidence of community investment, and enlightened government.
Hudson Mayor Tiffany Martin Hamilton said that the money will support efforts to make the town more attractive to businesses and visitors while enhancing resident access to education, recreation and employment.
