Federal stimulus includes $4 million for energy conservation projects in Central New York

Central New York communities will receive more than $4 million in federal stimulus money for energy conservation projects, the U.S. Department of Energy announced.

The money is part of $175 million allocated to New York state cities, counties and Native American governments for energy efficiency projects.

three local Native American governments are eligible for the assistance: the Cayuga Indian Nation ($50,400); the Oneida Nation ($83,500); and the Onondaga Nation ($47,400).

The money will be made available as grants through an application process to those living within the various municipalities or on Native American lands.

The formula grants are for projects that reduce total energy use and fossil fuel emissions, improving energy efficiency in residential or commercial buildings, according to Energy Department officials.

Among the projects eligible for grants are transportation programs that conserve energy, projects to reduce and capture methane and other greenhouse gas emissions from landfills, renewable energy installations on government buildings, and energy-efficient traffic signals and streetlights.

CNY to get more than $4M from federal government for conservation efforts.

It's just a matter of time before Obama gives them a reservation, Rhode Island decision or no. In fact, I could see congress passing a law to undo the law that the Rhode Island decision was based on.

It says Cayuga-Indian Nation I thought they lived in Canada. There may be a partial "Tribe" living here but they say they are millionaires so why would they get stimulus money? This is the crap that makes me angry. So Halfwit and Twonuts will get it huh?

I love how the article points out the "native american governments for energy efficient projects." Number one, why are we as taxpayers, allowing the United States to have two governments. The USA and the Native Amerian governments. This is garbage.

What will they do with this money? Make their casinos and smoke shops more energy efficient? Anything to make twoguns and halftowns life easier because I am sure all that money went into their pockets. The guy living in the cardboard house on the reservation that cant heat his box above 50 degrees wont get 1 cent.

They do. It is good to see that some people are now getting educated to the Indian situation around here thanks to the efforts of some on here.

Will the tribe "claim to be sovereign" and refuse this money?
