Today, Governor Kathy Hochul announced $28 million state investment in 7 cities most affected by pandemic-era gun violence. Amongst those cities is the City of Mount Vernon. $2 Million of these funds are made available by Governor Hochul and Lieutenant Governor Delgado through Project RISE. Project RISE will give communities disproportionately impacted by gun violence a chance to empower our neighborhoods, improve public safety and expand programs and services that increase opportunities for families and youth. We are thankful for Lt. Governor Delgado for joining us today at The Boys and Girls Club to ensure communities like ours that are impacted the most by these issues are on the frontline of funding to help fight back against crime.
