The Erie County Legislature unanimously approved funding that will benefit summer youth and recreation programs throughout the county, including a number that serve Legislator Ed Rath’s district.

Funding was secured for the following groups:

  • JCC Camp Centerland-$7,500
  • Research Foundation UB Center for Urban Studies-$7,500
  • Buffalo Engineering Awareness for Minorities- $5,000

“It is important to provide these organizations with the financial support needed to continue the great work they do,” said Legislator Rath. “Each of them offers a variety of educational and recreational opportunities that are valuable to kids throughout the community.”

“The funding supplied by the Primetime will allow us to serve more children in the greater Buffalo area, offering fee assistance and higher quality programming,” said Camp Centerland Director Michael Garcia.

Determination of Summer Primetime funding is coordinated through the Department of Social Services and the final proposal is requested by the County Executive’s office.  For a list of all organizations receiving funding in 2018, click here.
