CLIFTON PARK, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Several community projects in the Capital Region could soon be receiving federal funding as part of the federal Community Project Fund. Fifteen projects were selected between Albany, Rensselaer, Saratoga, and Schenectady Counties.

Congressman Paul Tonko said the funding all depends on when lawmakers can pass the federal budget.

“Of course, we need a budget to be done — completed. In the last two years, we have been very robust in that effort to get it done so that the capital fund project moneys could be released, so we are in the midst of that process,” Tonko said. “We are going to work very hard in a bipartisan, bicameral way to get the budget done.”
