Congressman Brian Higgins, D-NY-26, announced Cazenovia Recovery Systems Inc. has been awarded $22,367 through the Department of Veterans Affairs Grant and Per Diem Program.
"I applaud the work of Cazenovia Recovery Systems to help our veterans in need," Higgins said. "It is essential to have organizations, like this one, in our local communities to support veterans after they have returned home."
Cazenovia Recovery Systems provides resources for individuals who struggle with addiction, mental health issues, or homelessness. The funding will be used by the organization to acquire a van to provide outreach and transportation to homeless veterans.
