Local News

NEW YORK STATE (WSYR-TV) — A total of 31 projects in Cayuga and Oswego counties are getting an estimated $43 million in state funding.

As part of the state’s ongoing response to record flooding that hit shoreline communities over the summer, Governor Andrew Cuomo created the REDI Commission.

“The whole idea of REDI was to build resiliency and economic development in these shoreline communities of Lake Ontario,” said RoAnn Destito, Commissioner of the New York State Office of General Services.

Through Redi, the state has committed up to $300 million to rebuild the shoreline. Some of that money will go toward homeowner assistance, helping businesses and a regional dredging effort.
