About $82 million in state aid is headed to Long Island for various projects, including money for a nursing innovation lab at Adelphi University and to convert an armory in Huntington Station into a community center.

The state is also sending $4.7 million for a commercial building that is part of the Wyandanch Rising revitalization project.

Here is the complete list of the 97 Long Island projects that were awarded money at the state's Regional Economic Development Council awards on Thursday. Use the Newsday database to search by county, applicant or project title.

Smaller deals included $285,000 for a Long Island Wine Council tourism campaign and $76,000 for a Andreas Gursky exhibit at the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill.

Another $240,000 is headed to Nassau County to design and construct accessibility improvements to existing boat ramps and kayak launches along the county's South Shore.

The aid packages are part of Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo's competition for capital grants and state tax credits aimed at creating jobs.

The $82 million in state aid placed Long Island second among New York's regions, behind only the Mid-Hudson Valley, which was awarded $82.8 million.
