• $500,000 for Hunter Foundation Inc. in Tannersville towards the development of an incubator kitchen, the Food & Agriculture Culinary Hub.

• $500,000 for the Albany County Sheriff’s Office to expand its Sheriff Homeless Improvement Program (SHIP) from the current size of 50 beds to a 100-bed facility.
