KINGSTON, NY – RUPCO has announced a partnership with the City of Kingston to apply for a New York Main Street grant to revitalize the Broadway business corridor.

  RUPCO and Kingston are seeking Broadway property owners (from the I-587 roundabout to the Rondout Creek) to participate in the grant application process. 

The New York Main Street grant would support business creation/retention and housing along Broadway and can contribute to the landscape amenities of the future square at the Broadway and Grand intersection that is currently under design.

  The Main Street program is administered by the State Office of Homes and Community Renewal under the direction of the Housing Trust Fund Corporation. If awarded, the funding would assist Broadway property owners in renovating exterior facades and storefronts or interior renovations for commercial and residential housing units. 

As the local program administrator, RUPCO would help property owners navigate the process and access the reimbursement funding.

  “If awarded, this grant will support businesses along the Broadway corridor who need assistance in making repairs and renovations to their properties,” said Mayor Steven Noble. “We encourage business and property owners to reach out to our partner RUPCO and be a part of continued efforts to revitalize Broadway.”
