Governor George E. Pataki has continually supported the Haverstraw Revitalization effort. In his last round of grant distribution, Pataki released $3 million more toward the $150 million needed to continue Haverstraw’s rennaissance. This last funding happened in October of 2002. Since then, numerous projects in the Village have been earmarked by the state and federal government (like the Short Clove Road train overpass that has been funded and is in design stages). Rockland County government has also come through with millions of dollars for Haverstraw. Read about Governor Pataki’s thoughts on Haverstraw here.
