Last week, Gov. Cuomo announced the recipients of funding through the Yahoo Community Fund for Niagara County. Yahoo, a Verizon subsidiary, agreed to establish the fund as part of its agreement with Empire State Development to establish a customer care center and expand its data center in Niagara County.

Grants will be going to support a number of organizations, including the Western New York Land Conservancy; the Salvation Army; Literacy New York Buffalo Niagara; and the Niagara Falls Boys and Girls Club, among other groups.
