SYRACUSE, N.Y. – U.S. Rep. John Katko (NY-24) today announced that the City of Fulton, New York, has been awarded a $250,000 grant from the Northern Border Regional Commission’s (NBRC) Economic and Infrastructure Development Investment Program.  Representative Katko supported the application submitted by the City of Fulton’s Community Development Agency for this federal funding.

“As a member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, I recognize how important strong water infrastructure systems are for local municipalities in Central New York and across the nation,” said U.S. Rep. Katko.  “I commend the City of Fulton’s Community Development Agency for its efforts to spur economic growth and help revitalize distressed neighborhoods by updating and replacing vital infrastructure, and I was proud to support this application for funding.”

According to the City of Fulton’s grant application, this grant will allow the City of Fulton to properly size and place over 3,800 linear feet of water and sewer mains and update storm sewer lines at the former site of the Fulton Nestle facility.  Once completed, this site will create eight new divided commercial and retail lots that, when developed, will have the capacity to create and support over 200 local jobs.

Congressman John Katko represents the 24th Congressional District, which includes all of Onondaga, Cayuga, and Wayne Counties and a portion of Oswego County.  For more information, please visit https://katko.house.gov or www.facebook.com/RepJohnKatko.
