CWC Flood Recovery Fund

Posted on September 14, 2011

The Catskill Watershed Corporation (CWC) has transferred $5 million from the Catskill Fund for the Future (CFF) to aid in a business recovery program. The Board also approved the establishment of a CWC Business Recovery Fund to accept outside donations for businesses and not-for-profits.
