Seneca Falls wins $10 million DRI grant from state

SENECA FALLS — Persistence paid off for this Seneca County community.

On its third try, Seneca Falls was awarded a $10 million Downtown Revitalization Initiative grant from the state’s Finger Lakes Regional Economic Development Council. Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul went to the new home of the National Women’s Hall of Fame Wednesday morning to make the announcement.

“Like the early suffragists at the first women’s rights convention, you never gave up,” Hochul said. “It’s in the DNA of the women who started the fight right here many years ago and continues in women today.”
