Upper Delaware Council funding renewed

NARROWSBURG - Federal funding to keep the Upper Delaware Council functioning has been secured, Congressman John Faso (R, Kinderhook) said.

The funding had been delayed since the new fiscal year began on October 1, 2017 as the Department of Interior was reviewing all grant awards more than $50,000 in value.

“Restoring access to the federal funding we rely on to operate means that we can avoid our planned March 30 shut-down and staff layoffs, and continue our mission in partnership with the National Park Service to cooperatively oversee administration of the Congressionally-designated Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River,” said UDC Executive Director Laurie Ramie.

“This funding is absolutely critical for UDC and the important work that they do,” said Faso.
