A combined $165 million is headed our way, after a good showing by the Capital Region and Mohawk Valley at the governor's annual Regional Economic Development Awards.
Because the funds come from New York State dollars, every region receives some money but the Capital District came in second place with an award of $82.8 million and the Mohawk Valley ranked third with $82.4 million.
They money is used to create jobs and economic growth.
Some of the local projects include waterfront development along the Hudson and Mohawk Rivers, historic building restoration and agricultural assistance.
A total of $716 million was awarded.
Long Island received the most, $83 million, in part because of rebuilding due to Superstorm Sandy.
