Governor Kathy Hochul today announced 12 transformational projects in the City of Gloversville as part of the $10 million Downtown Revitalization Initiative award. The award will enhance public amenities and greenspace, expand housing opportunities, and support both new and existing small businesses. Project renderings are available here.

"We are ushering in a new era for Gloversville, attracting jobs, businesses, and people and making the community a better place to live and work," Governor Hochul said. "These investments will create more affordable housing, improve public amenities, and revitalize key businesses in downtown Gloversville, which will improve the quality of life for visitors and residents alike. My administration is committed to creating more livable communities and building a brighter future in Upstate New York."

Gloversville's downtown is distinguished by its unique character, historic architecture, renowned arts and cultural assets, parks and greenspace, and rich sense of community. Recent investments within and around Gloversville's compact, walkable downtown have made the area ripe for revitalization.

These investments are part of the Governor's ongoing efforts to revitalize the upstate economy and create more opportunities in the Mohawk Valley. Gloversville was named a DRI Round 5 winner in 2021. In addition to awarding grants for catalytic community investments, the Downtown Revitalization Initiative, led by the Department of State, provides technical assistance to participating communities as they develop a Strategic Investment Plan and identify projects to revitalize their downtown areas.
