Canisius High School will get a major face-lift on the windows in its academic wing, thanks to one of two federal Housing and Urban Development grants announced by U.S. Sen. Charles E. Schumer.
Canisius will receive $268,245 in a special-project grant that will be used for the approximately $340,000 window-replacement project in the school's Beecher Wing.
"We expect better lighting for each of the classrooms involved, and we expect the school to save a considerable amount of money in heating costs," said John Garfoot, vice president of advancement.
The project, which will replace the east- and west-facing windows on the southern end of the building, is expected to be completed over the summer.
Schumer also announced that the city of Dunkirk will received $651,403 in community development block-grant funds, which help cities provide housing and expanded economic opportunities, mostly for low- and moderate-income residents.
