The City of Glen Cove has
received funding from a variety of sources that have recognized the
significance of this project, not only for Glen Cove, but for the entire region.
Funding has been provided by the following organizations and individuals:
American Recovery and Reinvestment
has received $11 million in stimulus or American Recovery and Reinvestment Act
(ARRA) funding for construction of a new ferry terminal project and boat
basin. Having this project shovel ready
made all the difference in our ability to receive this funding. Our federal government has recognized that a
ferry service will bring about an economic boost, create jobs and improve
transportation options and linkages to and from Glen Cove, an important step in the rebirth
of the waterfront.
Restore NY Funding
has secured $695,000 in Restore New York Funding for construction of the Ferry
Ferry Boat Discretionary Funding
The Glen Cove Ferry Terminal and BoatBasin
has been consistently supported by our federal New York State Delegation –
Senator Charles Schumer, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Former Senator Hillary Clinton, and Congressman Peter King
who have worked to secure federal appropriations for this project.
