New York Capital Region

The severe flooding of 2006 and Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee in 2011 challenged the New York Capital Region and strengthened the resolve to build a broad, multi-county network and partnerships to better serve constituents when they’re in need. The New York Capital Region AFR is designed to forge county-level networks encompassing the counties of Albany, Rensselaer, Schenectady, and Saratoga.
