  • Staff Report 

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced the potential allocation of $3.6 million in federal funds for two significant projects in Yates County on Wednesday.

The Saunders Finger Lakes Museum in Branchport stands to receive $2 million, aiding in the anticipated demolition/construction project which may commence as soon as next month.

An additional $1.6 million is earmarked for Keuka College’s new rural community outpatient clinic, aiming to offer affordable healthcare to roughly 1,000 residents annually and training opportunities for aspiring healthcare professionals.

Natalie Payne, the museum’s executive director, emphasized the institution’s potential as a premier destination, promoting regional pride, cultural, and natural history knowledge. On the other hand, the proposed Keuka College clinic aims to address healthcare shortages in the area, offering a range of services from primary care to wellness coaching.
