ECGRA applications being reviewed

Local News

The Erie County Gaming Revenue Authority has received a record number of grant applications for funding.

Thirty applications from several local community assets were submitted requesting a total of $330,000.  ECGRA’s Community Asset Review Panel met today to go over the grant applications and score the requests based on several items.  

“They are scored on a sliding scale of one to five on things like the benefit to the community [and] public openness,” says Perry Wood, Executive Director of ECGRA.  “So, it is an objective way to decide who gets the funds and where they go.”

Wood says 12-15 organizations will benefit from this round of funding.
