ELIZABETHTOWN, N.Y. (AP) - New York state is investing $1.8 million in several projects in the North Country, including water and sewer upgrades, a fish hatchery and an effort to attract manufacturing jobs.

Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the grants are intended to boost local economies while helping to improve community infrastructure.

The communities of Tupper Lake, Canton, Elizabethtown, Clayton and Lyons Falls will each receive funding for water and sewer projects, many directly tied to local businesses.

Clarkson University will receive $250,000 to support a “light manufacturing incubator” to help start-up businesses.

Additional grants will support farm conservation near Fort Drum, and pay for the completion of improvements at a fish hatchery in Essex County.
