NNYPPAB

Northern NY Power Proceeds Allocation Board

A portion of the revenue NYPA earns from selling the power generated at the St. Lawrence Power Project goes into a fund to support economic development projects in St. Lawrence County. The state legislature passed a law creating the Northern New York Power Proceeds Allocation Board to monitor the distribution of those funds. The Board solicits and reviews applications and makes funding recommendations to the NYPA Board of Trustees. The capital in the Northern New York Economic Development Fund results from the net earnings from the Power Authority's market sale of unallocated St. Lawrence County Economic Development Power, a low-cost power program established for St. Lawrence County in 2012.

The primary role of the NNYPPAB is to solicit and review applications, and make funding recommendations to the NYPA Board of Trustees.

The Northern New York Power Proceeds Allocation Act: Effective December 29, 2014, created the Northern New York Power Proceeds Allocation Board (NNYPPAB), and required the New York Power Authority (NYPA) to establish the Northern New York Economic Development Fund (Fund).
