Cattaraugus County Arts Council Changes Name

You can’t call the Cattaraugus County Arts Council the Cattaraugus County Arts Council anymore.
It’s officially changed its name to Tri-County Arts Council.
They say the old name was kept some communities outside of the county from understanding who the Arts Council serves. It’s more of a regional organization the council’s executive director, Tina Hastings, told the Olean Times Herald. It also serves Allegany and Chautauqua counties.
There is Emergency food and shelter money available for people in McKean County.
The county’s been awarded over $22,000 in federal funding to help. The money will supplement emergency food and shelter programs in McKean County. The local board from McKean County, will determine how the money will be distributed. It goes to agencies like The Salvation Army, McKean/Potter Counties Chapter of the American Red Cross, The Bradfor United Way, Catholic Charities, Ministerial Association, the McKean County Housing and Redevelopment Authority and the Bradford YWCA.
