BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Federal officials will be in Buffalo to announce a $500,000 grant as part of a Great Lakes cleanup program.
The Environmental Protection Agency's administrator for the Great Lakes will be among the officials at Monday morning's announcement at the offices of the Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper organization.
Congressman Brian Higgins of Buffalo says the city is one of 16 to receive grants under the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. Higgins says the half-million-dollar project will be done on Niagara Street, which runs along the Niagara River on Buffalo's west side.
No other details about the grant have been released.
