New York Empire State Development


Riverhead is a town within Suffolk County, New York on the north shore of Long Island. Since 1727, Riverhead has been the county seat of Suffolk County. Riverhead’s downtown is a compact, diverse, mixed-use neighborhood that the town aims to make vibrant and serve as a recreational, shopping, and tourist destination with the revitalized Peconic River waterfront as its focal point.


Governor Hochul announced Riverhead will receive $10 million in funding as the Long Island region winners of the fifth-round of the Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI). Governor Hochul said “Riverhead plays important roles in the overall economic health of Long Island”.
