Isaiah 61, Niagara Tourism & Convention Corp. to benefit from state grants

The City of Niagara Falls will receive a $132,000 grant from the state to help turn a former fire hall on HIghland Avenue into a training center for the Isaiah 61 Project, which provides job training through the renovation of vacant homes.

The Niagara Tourism & Convention Corp. will share a $300,000 grant with five other tourism promotion agencies in Western New York to develop a branding plan for the region.

The funding announcements were made Wednesday by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo as part of the regional economic development council awards. As a whole, Western New York got $60.8 million.
