The NY Forward program will provide the village with a professional planning consultant and a team of state agency experts. These resources will help in developing a Strategic Investment Plan. There will be extensive community outreach and engagement throughout the process of determining which of these projects will meet state requirements for funding. If you are interested in actively participating in the community forums to help determine which projects should be selected for funding, these events will be posted on our village website as well as the Schuylerville Community page on Facebook. We will be forming, as per the requirements for this grant, a local planning committee. Applications to be considered for the steering committee for the NY Forward Grant can be emailed to
