Senator Jeff Klein announced $250,000 in funding he secured for Kingsbridge Riverdale Van Cortlandt Development Corporation in this year’s state budget. Senator Klein made the announcement during RiverFest, an annual celebration along the Hudson River in Riverdale. KRVC organizes the popular gathering, which attracts residents and merchants for a day of music, boat rides, lectures and more.
“KRVC is a wonderful organization with a main goal of uniting our community. I’m proud to have secured $250,000 this year for KRVC, which will help with their various projects and initiatives aimed at enhancing the lives of my constituents in the north Bronx,” said Senator Klein.
“This generous funding from Senator Klein will enable KRVC to build on our past success and increase our programming and events. Thanks to this funding, we will, among other things, be able to continue our jobs program and community beautification initiatives,” said KRVC Executive Director Tracy Shelton.
