NIAGARA COUNTY (WKBW) - The U.S. Government is providing $300,000 to help establish Niagara County's very first Procurement Technical Assistance Center or P-TAC for short.

To put it more simply, this facility will serve as a middle man for local business owners who want bid on federal contracts.

U.S. Representative Kathy Hochul was on hand to talk about the new grant and how it will help preserve the businesses in the area.

The World Trade Center Buffalo Niagara is also chipping in more than $100,000 to get this center up and running at Niagara University in Lewiston.
