What NY Towns Deserve Piece of $10 Million Grant?
Cities in the New York are currently vying for $10 million in grants, which will be given out in an effort to give major improvements to struggling towns. As cities such as Glens Falls and Plattsburgh start to win pieces of this prize, Maxwell economics professor Don Dutkowsky argues that smaller, poorer towns better benefit from these grants.
“These funds helped pretty good cities be better, as opposed to really helping cities in need to become more viable,” Dutkowsky told North Country Public Radio. “Places like Governeur or Tupper Lake.”
