Lake Ontario shoreline businesses get resiliency funding from New York

Big funding is coming to the shoreline of Lake Ontario in New York, according to Governor Andrew Cuomo.

The money will be used to strengthen businesses against future flooding, like was seen in 2017 and 2019.

“We know that climate change is real and there’s no such thing as a ‘hundred-year flood’ – it’s the new normal and we need to be prepared for anything Mother Nature sends our way,” Governor Cuomo said. “The Lake Ontario Business Resiliency Program is providing critical help to businesses to repair the damage from repeated flooding while strengthening their resiliency efforts as they build back better than before.”

Cuomo says the funding was made available to support resiliency-related capital improvement projects.
