HORSEHEADS, N.Y. (WENY) – New York State has approved a 24 million dollar grant to help those with Alzheimer's and other disorders.
The money will be able to be used for everything from caring and housing for those affected with the disease, along with educational programs, consultations, and support groups. A sizable, but undisclosed amount of money will be allotted to the Southern Tier.
Southern Tier Program Coordinator Marleah Denkenberger told WENY, “Here in the Southern Tier we have been working diligently to reach our rural communities.”
“We have vast rural communities in Steuben, Chemung, and Schuyler Counties, and it has been an ongoing project for us to continue to reach people with the diagnosis as well as their care partners.”
The grant money becomes available on July 1st, 2018.
