From the Office of Congressman Langworthy,
Congressman Nick Langworthy (NY-23) is pleased to announce three grants from the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) for projects in Cattaraugus and Chemung counties totaling more than $375,000.
“These ARC grants are a reflection of our commitment to fostering economic growth, enhancing vital services, and improving the quality of life in the Southern Tier,” said Rep. Langworthy. “With the development of The Hub, the renovation of Watson Center, and the funding for Able2’s dental clinic, we are building a stronger community that empowers entrepreneurs, supports mental health, and ensures access to critical healthcare services.”
In Olean, the ARC has allocated $100,000 to support the development of The Hub, a dynamic coworking space that will foster entrepreneurial growth and job creation — as well as $250,000 for the renovation of Watson Center, a critical community resource in Olean that provides mental health services, food distribution, and training programs.
In Elmira, Able2, a leading healthcare organization, will receive a grant of $25,000 to enhance and improve efficiencies at its “Article 28 Dental Clinic,” ensuring accessible dental care for those in need.
The Appalachian Regional Commission is an economic development agency of the federal government and 13 state governments focusing on 423 counties across the Appalachian region.
