State: Mid-Hudson Regional Economic Development Council A ‘Top-Performer’

Mid-Hudson Regional EDCDr. Marsha Gordon, President and CEO of The Business Council of Westchester, today expressed her enthusiastic support for the significant investment in projects that have been selected for funding through Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s Regional Economic Development Councils. The Mid-Hudson Regional Economic Development Council, or MHREDC, was designated as a “Top Performer” and granted $82.8 million — the largest amount of all 10 regional councils — through the competitive funding process.

“We’re pleased that so many worthwhile and innovative projects in the Hudson Valley will be receiving funding through Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Regional Economic Development Councils,” Gordon said. “These funds will directly help so many innovative projects that are sure to create new jobs and exciting opportunities while transforming the region and bolstering New York State’s economy.”

As a member of the MHREDC, Gordon played an important role in choosing the region’s top priorities in the competitive process. It is expected that funding through these projects will generate hundreds of millions of dollars in economic activity and create thousands of jobs in the Mid-Hudson Region, which includes Sullivan, Ulster, Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland and Westchester counties.
