Education, infrastructure and vital social services are improving in 10 Central New York counties, thanks to the Oneida Nation increasing its revenue sharing payments by nearly $9 million in 2016 over the prior year. The tribe paid almost $62 million to the state and local counties.

Beyond its drastic boost in public revenues, the Oneida Nation recently invested $20 million in its enterprises including the recent addition of six new signature restaurants in its all-new Food Hall at Turning Stone Resort Casino, a tourist destination in Verona. The tribe also provided pay increases to improve cost-of-living pay and benefits to thousands of New Yorkers.

“We have always been committed to partnership and to reinvestment -- and the revenues we have generated show that those ideals are playing a pivotal role in communities across the state,” said Oneida Nation Representative and Nation Enterprises CEO Ray Halbritter. “To preserve and expand the crucial public revenues that are serving Central New York, it is more critical than ever for public officials, business leaders and civic groups to commit ourselves to the spirit of collaboration that has served this region so well."

Nearly all Oneida Nation employees received a pay increase or bonus during the past sixth months, a total investment in staff of $13 million during 2016. Increased compensation and enhanced workforce training was added to the pre-existing roster of excellent benefits available to Nation employees. This significant change effectively leads to pay increases at every salary level.
