Jacobs says he's secured funding for district projects

posted by Press Release in Chris Jacobs, NY-27, news.

Press release:

With the passing of last night’s two-bill omnibus package in the House of Representatives, Congressman Chris Jacobs (NY-27) has secured critical funds for district projects. Jacobs released the following statement on the votes.

“I voted for the defense portions of the omnibus, which included funding for our national security agencies, military aid for Ukraine, and expanded funding for CBP and ICE – a need I heard directly when at the border last week. However, I voted against the non-defense portion of the omnibus because it contained partisan policies that erode the Second Amendment and grow domestic spending at a time when we are still grappling with 40-year record inflation,” Jacobs said.

“This year, each member was afforded the opportunity to submit community project funding requests to support critical projects in their district. We held an extensive search to locate projects of importance in this district and secure federal funds for them,” Jacobs said. “My community project requests focused heavily on a priority I have had since taking office – supporting rural communities in NY-27 and ensuring they every resource to prosper now, and generations into the future. Whether building out high-speed broadband infrastructure, educating the next generation of Western New York farmers, or improving emergency services – these goals and initiatives are reflected in the funding I secured for my district.”

Specifically, Jacobs was able to secure funding for several projects including: 

  • Niagara Orleans Wireless Broadband Initiative - $3,877,500
  • Lockport Memorial Hospital Campus of Mount St. Mary's Hospital - $2,000,000
  • GLOW YMCA Healthy Living Campus - $900,000
  • Dansville YMCA Branch - $105,000
  • Cornell Cooperative Extension Ag/Tech Community Response & Learning Center - $379,432
  • Royalton-Hartland Agriculture Center for Excellence Outdoor Learning - $515,685
  • Wyoming County Fire Training Center - $597,289
