Funding for the 2,675 projects ranged from $500 to $4,912,000, with the average being $19,501.

A cursory (and randomly conducted) skim also revealed that the The Sunset Park Business Improvement District got $3,000 to “provide entertainment for the 15-block street festival event,” the Sandy Creek Historical Society received $3,000 to “update office equipment” and the American Legion Post 731 in Schaghticoke got $6,000 to buy “kitchen equipment.” (Insert “pork” joke here.)
