Over $5 million in grant funding is coming to New York’s 24th Congressional District.
Congresswoman Claudia Tenney has made the announcement that $5 million is going to the Cayuga and Seneca Community Action Agency. Funded by a Head Start and Early Head Start Award, the money will go to strengthening early education initiatives in both counties.
Two cities will also receive funding through the Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program. Watertown will get $85,754.54 and Auburn will get $30,368.18, allowing the municipalities to bolster the response capabilities of their fire departments.
“As a tenacious advocate for our community, I am thrilled to see these significant grants awarded to our district,” said Congresswoman Tenney. “This funding will boost the capabilities of our fire departments in Watertown and Auburn and work to strengthen education resources in Cayuga and Seneca Counties. These grants will be a remarkable asset to our community, and I remain committed to supporting essential programs in New York’s 24th District.”
