UTICA, N.Y. – New York State has awarded $13 million in grants to environmentally conscious housing projects, and $1 million of that will go toward the Johnson Park Green Community Apartments in Utica.
The grants are part of the state’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
The new complex will consist of three buildings containing townhomes for vulnerable populations making below the area median income.
The apartments will be all electric, use air source heat pump heating, CO2 heat pumps, electric dryers and induction cooktops.
The grant funding was awarded through the second round of the state’s Buildings of Excellence competition, which provides funding for the design, construction and operation of low-carbon or carbon neutral multi-family buildings.
The Johnson Park Center held its weekly walk-up food giveaway, handing out boxes to about 300 local families.Posted: Mar 9, 2021 5:53 PMUpdated: Mar 9, 2021 5:53 PMPosted By: Kali Zigrino

Utica, NY. Many people are still being challenged because of the Coronavirus Pandemic. It is causing long-term problems, as many in our community do not have money or resources to meet their basic needs. Many faces having to choose between paying rent, the National Grid bill, or putting food on the table. Due to lack of funding, JPC had to make cuts. We reduced having two to one drive-thru per month. We are so thankful to Capraro Technologies, Inc. (CTI), having a matching fundraiser campaign with All In For Vin Memorial Fund, Scalzo, Zogby, and Wittig Insurance Fund, Mandour Fund, Four Anonymous Donor Funds all are Donor-Advised Funds at the Community Foundation of Herkimer & Oneida Counties;” JetNet, LLC; Dugan Donor-Advised fund of the Charles Schwab; and various individual donors financial gifts are sponsors for the 2nd Drive-Thru in February. Along the support from the Food Bank of Central New York (FBCNY) and generous food donations from the Compassion Coalition, JPC will have a Drive-Thru Food Giveaway for disadvantaged individuals and families around JPC Sites on Monday, February 22, 2021, from 2 pm to 7:30 pm Snow or Shine (Exception: No Food Truck Delivery or Mandatory Road Closings due to Inclement Weather.)
Starting on the corner of Arthur and West Streets, cars/vehicles will line up at the registration station where JPC Intake Persons, wearing face masks, will assist you with completing the Intake Form. They will place the number of households represented in each car on its windshield. Then you will drive up to each Food station, where volunteers will put the food in your car/vehicle.
If you do not have a car/vehicle, please come to the Walkers Food Giveaway Snow or Shine on Tuesday, February 23, 2021, between 3 pm to 6 pm. (Exception: No Food Truck Delivery or Mandatory Road Closings due to Inclement Weather) at JPC Food Pantry 1404 West Street, Utica, New York 13501
A tractor-trailer full of food will be available to be given to the community. Food items may include chicken, pork patties, eggs, cheese, fresh produce, fresh fruit, elbow macaroni, canned items such as soup, beans, etc.
During these challenging times of the pandemic, by fighting hunger and food insecurity, the JPC Food Giveaway helps families & individuals to have food on their tables, be food secured, and a stepping stone to self-sufficiency.
