Mercy College is the proud recipient of a $2.5 million state grant from the Higher Education Capital Matching Grant Program.  The grant, one of the largest to be awarded in Westchester County, is part of a state matching grant program and is specifically for funding capital projects.  Mercy will be using the state funding for the completion of the construction of Hudson Hall and the campus commons.

Mercy College President Tim Hall said: “This grant will go a long way to help cover the costs of building Hudson Hall and updating the campus commons.  It is money that will be used to directly improve the experience of our students.”

Mercy College Chief Advancement Officer Bernadette Wade said: “We are thrilled to be awarded these dollars.  They will be put to excellent use and will vastly improve the facilities on Mercy’s campus.” 

In a statement, New York State Governor Andrew M. Cuomo said: “New York’s colleges and universities are among the best in the nation – and with this funding, we are helping them make big investments that will benefit students in both the near and long-term future.”
