Congressman Tom Suozzi (D-Glen Cove) was scheduled to announce nearly $14 million in funding for multiple North Shore and New York City-based groups on Wednesday ahead of his departure as New York’s 3rd congressional representative.
Suozzi was scheduled to make the announcements at the Roslyn Grist Mill from 11:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m., followed by the Sid Jacobson JCC from 11:50 a.m. to 12:05 p.m.
The groups getting funds vary from government agencies to nonprofit organizations. Some North Hempsted-based organizations, such as the Great Neck Senior Center ($464,500) and the Roslyn Grist Mill Rehabilitation ($500,000), will be amongst the beneficiaries.
Other recipients include the Center for Women in New York ($1,000,000); India Home Colon Cancer ($500,000); Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory ($2,000,000); LGBT Network ($500,000); Northport flooding ($1,392,000); Asharoken flood abatement ($1,000,000); Garvies Point ($294,300); Services Now for Adult Persons, Queens ($750,000); YMCA Huntington ($250,000); Met Council ($750,000); City of Glen Cove Duck Pond Road Aeration Station ($3,452,972); New York City Office of Emergency Management ($926,813); and LIU “Exploring Presidential Stories” ($149,500).
Suozzi is coming off a failed gubernatorial primary campaign in which he lost to Gov. Kathy Hochul in late June. He also did not run to keep his congressional seat, which he has held since 2017.
