ALBION – The Village of Albion will have a 6 p.m. meeting on Thursday at the village office on East Bank Street to discuss possible projects in the Restore NY program, which could bring up to $10 million to revitalize distressed commercial and residential sites.

The program funds reconstruction, structural repairs, repair and replacement of mechanical systems, energy efficiency upgrades, and demolition.

Projects could include new construction, renovation of existing buildings, facade improvements, and renovation for new retail, office, commercial, industrial, recreational or cultural uses.

The village is working with G & G Municipal Consulting and Grant Writing in Spencerport to submit an application. For more information, contact a G & G representative at (585) 368-8866 or

The village already meets the qualifications as an economically distressed community due to poverty levels and economic hardship, said Jay Grasso, owner of G&G Municipal Consulting and Grant Writing.

That means the village won’t need to do income surveys for a part of the village to qualify. The entire village meets that criteria, which means projects can be picked throughout the village and not just the downtown business district, like other state programs are focused on.

He sees Albion as a strong contender to receive funding through Restore New York.
