Commerce Chenango has announced that its economic development affiliate, Development Chenango Corporation, has been awarded $250,000 to establish a Main Street grant program in the Village of New Berlin.

The funding from the New York Office of Community Renewal will leverage an additional $84,000 from the owners of the downtown buildings that will be renovated. The $334,000 program will make improvements to at least six commercial buildings that will be renovated.

The New Berlin Main Street grant was one of five Chenango County projects announced last week during Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Regional Economic Development Council awards ceremony.

Others include a $275,000 grant to Sunrise Family Farms, which will help fund their $3.4 million expansion in Greene; $30,000 to Greene for a sewer collection engineering study; nearly $100,000 to DCMO BOCES for training unemployed individuals for health-related careers; and a $2.3 million Recharge New York power allocation for an expansion project by Golden Artist Colors, Inc., based in Columbus.
