OSWEGO, N.Y. (AP) - Oswego is the latest city in New York state to win $10 million in state funding for the revitalization of its downtown.

Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo traveled to the city on Lake Ontario Thursday to make the announcement.

A total of 10 cities and towns will each win $10 million, with one in each of the state’s 10 upstate economic regions. The money will go to help local officials attract new businesses, housing or community services to downtown areas.

Westbury, Elmira, Plattsburgh, Middletown and Geneva have already been announced as winners.

Cuomo has said the contest is intended to help local communities turn their downtowns into “vibrant” places to live, work and raise families.
