Choice Words of New Paltz served as the grant writers for a recently-announced $3.4 million federal grant targeted to build the new headquarters for the Hudson Valley Food & Beverage Alliance on the campus of the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) in Hyde Park, NY.
A grant writing and public relations firm, Choice Words worked with the Hudson Valley Economic Development Corporation (HVEDC) and the CIA to submit the grant application to the U.S. Commerce Department’s Economic Development Administration (EDA). U.S. Senator Charles Schumer recently announced that the EDA had allocated $3.4 million in flood disaster relief funding for the project pending finalization of details.
“This is second significant federal grant that Choice Words has secured working with HVEDC,” said HVEDC President Michael Oates. “Steve Densmore and his team at Choice Words have proven to be extremely reliable and talented grant writers capable of handling important proposals that are helping us make a difference in the Hudson Valley.”
Choice Words’ Founder and President Steve Densmore said: “Working with HVEDC has given Choice Words the opportunity to contribute to some of this region’s most visionary economic development initiatives. We look forward to helping Mike Oates and HVEDC carry out more important projects in the coming year.”
Choice Words offers Hudson Valley companies and nonprofits assistance with public relations, corporate communications, fundraising, and grant writing. The firm will be opening a second office at the Orange County Business Accelerator in New Windsor in November.
