Senator Skoufis Announces $10K in Funding for India Association of Catskills Region
Senator James Skoufis (D-Hudson Valley) announced $10,000 in funding he secured for programming and support services for the India Association of Catskills Region (IACR). IACR is an educational, social, and cultural group that provides a platform for individuals of Indian origin to come together and celebrate cultural heritage.
Senator Skoufis said, “It cannot be understated how important and valued Indian-American contributions are to our community. Not only is this group necessary for Indian-Americans in the region to be able to connect with their ethnic identities, but IACR also partners with local communities to coordinate food banks, soup kitchens, and donations. I’m thankful for their work in the Hudson Valley and am confident this funding will empower them to continue to grow and accomplish the great work they do.”
Neena Raizada, President of the India Association of Catskills Region said, “This generous funding will help us achieve our goal of bringing the Indian and American cultures together in the community. I thank Senator Skoufis for his unwavering support of our work for all these years. His assistance has been instrumental and I look forward to continuing to work together for the betterment of our communities.”
Senator Skoufis has successfully continued to secure funding for indispensable organizations from across the region and plans to announce more funding in the weeks to come.
