Benefits of SASS ~3~

The information generated by this project will also provide background and improve opportunities for grants. Designation as a Scenic Area of Statewide Significance greatly increases a region’s ability to obtain public grants and private foundation support for a range of projects. Grants including economic development, tourism promotion, land conservation, environmental restoration, historic preservation, downtown revitalization and sustainable transportation are among the many potential sources of funding that will be enhanced by state-wide recognition. Potential funding sources include the Federal Transportation Enhancement Program (TEP), the Northern Border Regional Commission, and applicable categories in the New York State Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) such as the Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (DOS), NY Main St. (Office of Community Renewal), Market New York (Empire State Development), and Municipal Parks (Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation). Private investment in residential and commercial real estate, businesses, and infrastructure will also be encouraged by the fact that the region has been officially recognized as a unique and valuable asset to the entire state.
