Erie County, NY- Annually, Erie County allocates funding for programs that focus on engaging area youth in daytime programs during their summer vacation. These programs are mainly focused on high-risk youth and offer both educational and character development opportunities while also providing a place for recreation and socialization. By increasing the accessibility of safe and positive engagement, Erie County government is making an investment in reducing crime and poverty by giving kids a safe place to stay and learn while school is not in session.
Erie County Legislator for the 1st Legislative District Legislator Howard Johnson is pleased to announce that the following award recipients will receive $10,000 in funding from Erie County for the “Operation Primetime” program for 2019:
- Buffalo Urban League
- King Urban Life Center
- Polish Community Center/Matt Urban
- Resource Council of WNY
- Young Audiences of WNY
“I am hopeful Erie County’s investment in youth programs enriches and enhances the experience of our young people in the city of Buffalo. I am grateful to the County Executive for increasing funding for Operation Primetime in the 2019 Budget to accommodate the needs of our youth,” said Legislator Johnson.
