The COVID-19 Pandemic had a devastating impact on many communities all over the nation. From New York to California, neighborhoods all over the United States suffered loss of life and massive financial impacts from the country essentially shutting down for more than two years.

To help combat that and allow communities to rebuild, the federal government enacted several financial stimulus plans to inject resources into communities and kick-start things.

Like other regions in the country, Buffalo received millions from the federal government to do just that. Buffalo received over $330 million in American Rescue Plan funds to help Buffalonians power through.

A little more than $6 million is now going out to community groups all over Buffalo to help them uplift Buffalonians after the Buffalo Common Council approved these payments of American Rescue Plan dollars during their June 25th meeting.

Eleven different organizations will receive a total of $6,273,086.03 from the City.

Organizations like the African American Cultural Center of Buffalo, the Nyamekye Foundation, and the Buffalo Urban Development Corporation will all receive at least $1 million each in ARP funds; the remaining eight groups will receive different amounts.

Colored Musicians Club is receiving $500,000, the Italian Cultural Center is getting $100,000, and the Matt Urban Center is getting just under $200,000 - all these funds should go a long way to help these groups support Buffalo.
