Buffalo, NY —BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York has awarded $2.5 million in grants to 12 major health-based projects across Western New York that will have a positive impact on behavioral health, cardiovascular health, diabetes, health-care workforce development, healthy children, and the opioid epidemic.
These grants follow a $2.7 million investment from the Blue Fund in 2018 that supported nine projects that are already benefitting the community. This includes the completion of two new playground builds at Mayors Park in North Tonawanda and Martin Luther King Jr. Park in the City of Buffalo; the opening of a medically-oriented gym at Jericho Road; and the design and programming of the Western New York Land Conservancy’s DL&W Corridor Trail.
