The Coxsackie NY Forward Application aims to receive between $2.25 million and $4.5 million in funding for projects that will help transform the downtown neighborhood into a vibrant community where New Yorkers want to live, work, play, and raise families.

Submit your project ideas - by September 2nd 

We are looking for transformative, shovel-ready project ideas to include in the NY Forward application! For your project proposal to be included in the initial application, you must be able to provide all information requested in the form and meet other NYS requirements. Eligible project types include building renovation and redevelopment, adaptive reuse, projects that include new construction or creation of a new space, and projects that elevate specific cultural, historical qualities that enhance the feeling of small-town charm.


Projects should provide broader benefits for the community, and be shovel ready. Shovel ready means your project is designed, cost estimates are known, the site is secured, you have some funding in place, and implementation could feasibly begin by early 2024 (e.g. with NYF funding).If your project is not shovel ready, please still submit the project form to be included in a possible future project list. Forms submitted will be reviewed and additional information and documentation may be requested. Please note that inclusion in the application does not guarantee your project will receive funding if Coxsackie is awarded.
