As part of a $10 million three-year initiative led by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to create homeownership opportunities on Buffalo's East Side and in the Town of Cheektowaga, the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo along with its partners in the Green and Healthy Homes Initiative will receive $2 million to assist approximately 200 families at elevated risk of losing their homes in those neighborhoods due to high costs of maintenance and energy usage.

The Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo will be working with the following GHHI partners: Belmont Housing Resources; the Center for Employment Opportunities; the Concerned Clergy Coalition of WNY; the Erie County Department of Health; FLARE Center; Heart of the City Neighborhoods; Lt. Colonel Matt Urban Center; New Buffalo Impact; PUSH Buffalo; the Town of Cheektowaga; the University District Community Development Association; and the Western New York Coalition to Prevent Lead Poisoning.

Together, they will use the funds to create healthy, sustainable living environments for families by helping homeowners access weatherization, repair, and home health programs (including lead remediation) from multiple organizations through a single process.
