Youth and senior organizations to receive additional funding for this coming year

Erie County Legislator Kevin Hardwick is pleased to announce additional funding in the 2019 Erie County Budget which was signed into law on December 10th by County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz.

The budget contains the largest decrease in the county’s tax rate in over a decade, funds for public health programs and infrastructure improvements, as well as increased funding for community and cultural organizations.

“This budget provides resources to organizations that enrich our community,” said Legislator Hardwick.

Highlights include:

• $8,000 for Brighton Place Community Resource Center and Library

• $22,500 for the Boys & Girls Club of the Northtowns

• $3,000 for additional senior services across Grand Island and Tonawanda

• $60,000 to continue Hearts and Hands’ mission of serving vulnerable adults in underserved communities

• The City of Tonawanda, Citizens Science Community Resources, and American Reparatory Theater will also receive county funding for the first time this year

Legislator Hardwick noted that, “This budget was a compromise, and I am happy we were able to support the services residents value while granting them much-needed relief on their taxes. I thank the County Executive and my legislature colleagues for coming to the table with open minds.”
