Funding for the state’s regional economic development councils will be announced Wednesday in Albany, officials said Tuesday.

The Finger Lakes Regional Economic Development Council is among 10 councils statewide competing for portions of $220 million in state funding for projects and strategies.

The Finger Lakes council was the grand prize winner in 2012, receiving $96.2 million. It was awarded $68.8 million in 2011, the first year of the competition.

Its two-year total of $165 million ranks third among the 10 councils.

The Eastman Business Park in Rochester and Greece is the top priority for the regional council this year, a September report stated.

The awards presentation begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Hart Theatre at the Egg Center for Performing Arts.
