VOORHEESVILLE — First Niagara and Citizens Bank have awarded the Albany County Rural Housing Alliance, based in Voorheesville, with a total of $7,500 in grant funds to be used for its emergency home repair program.

The program helps low-income homeowners who are faced with small emergency home repairs for which they simply cannot find the funds.

ACRHA received $5,000 from First Niagara and $2,500 from Citizens Bank.

“When financial institutions such as First Niagara and Citizens Bank partner with us by way of grant funds we are able to reach out and help homeowners who are struggling to keep up with unexpected home repairs.  We thank First Niagara and Citizens Bank for their support in this endeavor,” said ACRHA’s director, Judith Eisgruber, in a release from ACRHS.
