Governor Kathy Hochul today announced 11 transformational projects in Buffalo's Broadway-Fillmore neighborhood to enhance the quality of life for Buffalonians and create business, employment, and housing opportunities as part of the $10 million Downtown Revitalization Initiative award. These investments will leverage the neighborhood's dense stock of largely historic commercial buildings for vibrant new green space, retail-oriented streets, improved bike and pedestrian connections and lively streetscapes. These improvements are part of the Governor's ongoing efforts to revitalize the upstate economy and uplift Western New York communities.

"We are forging a new path forward for Buffalo — making significant investments that will help continue to rewrite the Buffalo comeback story," Governor Hochul said. "Our investments in housing, economic development, and job creation in East Buffalo will help breathe new life into the community and make it a better place to live and work. My administration will continue our efforts to transform neighborhoods into vibrant community centers and build a better future for New Yorkers."
