The City of Oneonta received $200,000 for microenterprise assistance to start-up businesses, and $631,000 to improvements for Upper Reservoir Improvements, plus $420,000 to begin upgrading Huntington Memorial Library’s park.

The Village of Cooperstown received $269,500 to replace the leaky skylights in the ballroom at 22 Main, and $22,500 for a walking pier at Lakefront Park.
