The Mount seeks state funds for Dominican Center redevelopment

NEWBURGH – Mount Saint Mary College in Newburgh has applied for $3 million to $4 million in state funds as part of the state’s Mid-Hudson Regional Economic Development Council program for its Dominican Center redevelopment project.

College President Fr. Kevin Mackin acknowledged the grant process is extremely competitive, but he believes the college has a good chance of being selected.

“Our project is shovel ready, as we say, so I think that’s what the governor is looking for, shovel ready projects that can jumpstart the economy and we’re focusing on the Dominican Center because that will create jobs for people and also we are focusing on our business program,” Mackin said.

The $20.5 million redevelopment will include a state-of-the-art library resource center and student housing.
