BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — New York State awarded the Erie County Youth Bureau $130,000 to participate in a program called “Safe Summer NY 2021.”

The money comes from nearly $2 million in state funds set aside for neighborhoods across the state with high amounts of gun violence.

Erie County will use the money to create programs for people ages 12-24 in order to try and steer them away from gun violence.

The majority of money coming to Erie County will focus on areas in Buffalo.
