Health center, ORMC winners in state grants

Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office has released the complete list of projects that are getting funded through the Regional Economic Development councils in this round, and there are a few Middletown-area ones on the list.

The Middletown Community Health Center is going to get $500,000 for its plans to turn the old O&W station at Wickham and Low avenues into a health clinic.

Orange Regional Medical Center would get $750,000 to build a medical office building/fitness center on its main hospital property in the Town of Wallkill. The City of Middletown is also getting $30,000 to update its 2003 sewer system evaluation story, to better identify sources of inflow and infiltration.

A number of other local projects — mostly in Orange and Ulster counties — got money; there’s too many to list here, but Taylor Biomass is one of the biggies, they’re getting $1 million. Continental Organics, in New Windsor, is getting $750,000. The City of Kingston is getting over $1.7 million for various projects, the largest being to build a rail-trail.

The grants get paid out when the recipient does the work they’re for.

Overall, the Mid-Hudson Region has received $59.6 million in job grants. Only New York City, at $57.4 million, got less.

Jim Walsh will have a more complete story about the local impacts in Thursday’s Times Herald-Record.
