Congressman Brian Higgins (NY-26) announced more than $7.75 million in federal funding to support efforts to end homelessness in Western New York.

“This funding will allow us to continue to make great strides in efforts to see that every Western New Yorker has a place to call home,” said Congressman Higgins. “The credit goes to each of these local agencies providing critical resources for the homeless and making a real difference in the lives of those they serve.”

Homeless Alliance of Western New York Executive Director Dale Zuchlewski said, “I’d like to thank Congressman Higgins for his continued support for federal funding for homeless services. 6,000 people experienced homelessness in the Erie Niagara region last year and these funds help restore their lives through needed supports and housing.”

“We wish to thank HUD and the Federal Government for it’s on continued support of our efforts to make a difference in the lives of the people we serve,” added Marlies Wesolowski, Executive Director of the Lt. Col. Matt Urban Human Services Center of WNY. “Having a roof over one’s head and a place to call home can sometimes make the difference between life and death, success or failure.”
