City of Buffalo to receive EPA help
BUFFALO, N.Y. — The City of Buffalo has been named one of 43 communities in the United States to receive technical assistance from the Environmental Protection Agency for helping spark economic development in areas in need of help.
According to the EPA, Buffalo was chosen to receive a Sustaining Equitable Development tool, which will help communities manage change through equitable development supported by the growth of housing, culture and local businesses in specific neighborhoods.
EPA staff will hold a one to two day workshop in the area and help outline specific steps that community members could take to implement ideas that were given in the workshop.
The EPA has not named what area of the city it will focus on.
