Governor Cuomo Announces Projects Funded Through Empire State Poverty Reduction Initiative Launching in Syracuse
Open Letter to the Community: the "P" Word
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced 10 organizations that will receive more than $1.7 million through the Empire State Poverty Reduction Initiative to undertake community-based projects in the City of Syracuse. These projects are a direct result of the Governor's $25 million initiative to help 16 communities develop locally-driven strategies to reduce poverty and increase economic opportunity for all New Yorkers.
"This initiative helps communities develop a pathway to guide low-income New Yorkers toward economic independence," Governor Cuomo said. "With this funding, Syracuse will join other regions in developing models that are effective at addressing poverty in some of the hardest hit areas of the state. I commend these efforts and look forward to seeing the programs deliver results."
