Applications sought for state's Better Buffalo Fund grants

Applications are now available for Round Three of the $40 million Better Buffalo Fund, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced Monday.

The Better Buffalo Fund is a part of the Buffalo Billion initiative, created to revitalize neighborhood commercial districts and encourage growth along transportation corridors.

"Investments made through the Better Buffalo Fund support the revitalization of blighted or forgotten neighborhoods, improve commuter access to Buffalo transit stops and walkable areas, and help support the continued resurgence of this great city," Cuomo said in a statement.

To apply for funding, an application and other materials must be submitted by Feb. 1. Go to esd.ny.gov/better-buffalo-fund-program.

For more information on the Better Buffalo Fund and past awardees, go to buffalobillion.ny.gov/Better-Buffalo-Fund.

Thirty-five businesses and community organizations received more than $20 million in the first two rounds, according to Mayor Byron W. Brown.

An information session on the application process will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. Dec. 20 at the Frank E. Merriweather Library, 1324 Jefferson Ave.
