Written by on June 13, 2024

$750,000 in state funding  is coming to Rochester.  Developed in 2015, the Rochester-Monroe Anti-Poverty Initiative program works to lift families out of poverty in Monroe County. Minimum wage increases and greater access to affordable housing and mental health services are among the efforts made through the anti-poverty initiatives. Officials say the hope is to integrate more thoroughly in impacted communities, helping folks achieve economic success. Assembly members Demond Meeks & Harry Bronson are among several members of the Greater Rochester state delegation that helped with the  efforts to secure the funding.
