The New NY Bridge project Community Benefits Program (CBP) is reaching out to 57 private homeowners on both sides of the Hudson River to help them reduce indoor construction noise. These residents qualify for up to $30,000 each to install new sound-reducing windows and doors.

Cuomo recently announced the state is making a $20 million investment from the 2014-2015 state budget to support the implementation of the recommendations of the New NY Bridge Mass Transit Task Force (MTTF).
