The funding was included in a $411,084 package that was approved unanimously by the Legislature at its June 26, 2014 session. The Boys and Girls Club of East Aurora and Boys and Girls Club of Holland received $10,000 each.

 

“I am pleased that the county is once again assisting youth organizations with their efforts to provide quality programming through Primetime Funding. Last year, I visited the local Boys and Girls Clubs, saw firsthand how the funding was being utilized, and was impressed with the various programs and scholarships offered. This has proven to be a good partnership and I know many local youths and families will once again benefit from the Primetime Funding,” said Legislator Lorigo.

 

Legislator Lorigo also noted the approval of funding for organizations that benefit the entire county, including Greater Niagara Frontier Council – Boy Scouts; Be-A-Friend - Big Brothers Big Sisters of Erie County; Girl Scouts of WNY; and Young Audiences.

 

Determination of Primetime funding is coordinated through the Department of Social Services and the final proposal requested by the County Executive’s Office.
