Governor Cuomo is awarding $2.5 million to expand after-school programs in Western New York. 

It’s part of $35 million investment to support high-need school districts statewide. 

“An investment in our children is an investment in the future of this state,” Governor Cuomo said. 

Research has shown that after-school programs are associated with lower school drop-out rates and a reduction in juvenile crime. 

The following districts have been awarded funding in Western New York: 

Buffalo City School District            $1,416,000
Dunkirk City School District           $454,400
Friendship Central School District $240,000
