Stimulus spending in Greene and Columbia

Dec 16, 2009 7:26 am
ProPublica reports $4,891,384 in stimulus spending in Greene County and $5,301,605 in Columbia County. That's $100 per capita in Greene and $86 per capita in Columbia, well below the $616 per county average in New York State (which is skewed because of New York City). Hudson Opera House, Columbia-Greene Community College, Columbia Opportunities, and Kenneth W. Boynton are among the recipients in Columbia, while Columbia Greene Beauty School, Mountainview Housing, Dockside Grill, and Sophia's Pizza were among the loans and grants in Greene County.
