Have you ever had an idea for an awesome project in Newburgh that just needed a small boost in funds to make a reality? Now it might be possible with the newly founded Awesome Foundation.  A Newburgh chapter has been launched and they are accepting applications from the community each month.

Awesome Newburgh seeks to boost and promote the city and to catalyze more community projects. Preferred projects are those that are open to the public and projects that forge (new) collaborations in Newburgh.

Each month, applicants have a chance to win $1,000 towards a project. The application deadline is the first Monday of the month. Board members meet later that week to review the previous month’s submissions and choose a winner. To learn more about submitting a project, read these guidelines.

If you have a question about the application process, seek additional help, or want to get involved, email newburgh@awesomefoundation.org Follow them on Instagram to see awarded projects.

The Newburgh Community Land Bank, (NCLB) is seeking responses from interested parties for the purchase and redevelopment of either or both of the properties at 123 and 125 William Street in the City of Newburgh, New York, which NCLB acquired from the City in September 2017 subsequent to property tax foreclosure.

NCLB’s mission is to improve the quality of life in Newburgh by stabilizing and revitalizing abandoned properties, returning them to the tax rolls through transfer to responsible purchasers for full rehabilitation. NCLB seeks proposals that demonstrate a compatible use for the surrounding area, a feasible plan to be completed within a reasonable timeframe (no more than eighteen months from the date of sale), and adequate financial capacity and renovation experience to undertake the project.

Deadline is June 15, 2018.
