Onorato Secures $70K For CALDC
In the recently enacted 2009-2010 New York state budget, state Senator George Onorato (D-Long Island City) has secured a total of $70,000 to support the activities of the Central Astoria Local Development Coalition (CALDC). The organization is slated to receive a $40,000 grant to support its broad array of community housing services, as well as $30,000 for its cultural programs, including the Astoria Park Waterfront Series and Summer Fun Children's Series.
"The Central Astoria Local Development Coalition provides a variety of important services for our community, whether helping local residents with housing issues or bringing people together to enjoy cultural events with their friends and neighbors," Onorato said. "I am happy that I am able to help this organization offer these programs for the benefit of Queens residents."
