The City of Batavia was awarded a $450,000 grant to improve a targeted area downtown. The BDC was tapped to administer the program and equitably distribute the grants to the local property owners representing the New York State program parameters.
More than $1,200,000 was invested with most contribution made by the private sector to improve their buildings. More than 25 commercial units were impacted, plus two existing and seven brand new apartments were improved and rented immediately achieving program goals.
