The Town of Colesville has recently been awarded a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) by New York State. Theses funds will be used for the rehabilitation of single family, substandard properties owned and occupied by household's with low-to-moderate in income. This program is known as the "Colesville Town Rehabilitation Program ll.
If you own and occupy a home within the Town's boundaries, and meet all of the qualifications, financial assistance may be available for the rehabilitation of your property. The goal of the rehabilitation is to remedy code violations and hazardous situations, and to provide adequate weatherization for homes owned and occupied principally by persons of low -to- moderate incomes. The Town realizes that since the demand for housing rehabilitation may exceed the supply of funds, priority will be given to households with the lowest income combined with the most urgent housing needs.

The Town of Colesville lies in the northeast part of Broome County and is bounded on the north by Chenango County, on the east by the Town of Sanford, on the south by the Town of Windsor, and on the west by the Towns of Kirkwood and Fenton. The town was formed on April 3, 1821, from the Town of Windsor. Harpursville is the largest hamlet in the town although it is not incorporated.
Colesville derives its name from pioneer Nathaniel Cole, a revolutionary soldier. He settled here in 1795, on a hill south of Harpursville, known as Coles Hill. He built a tavern there which was in operation as early as 1800. It was the first tavern between Albany and Binghamton.
Broome County's Nathaniel Cole Park was opened in the town in 1974 and is located about two miles from the site of its namesake's tavern.
