New York, NY-Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) is pleased to announce that many programs benefiting the people of the 8th Congressional District of New York have received funding in the Congressional appropriations process. Rep. Nadler worked hard to secure this federal funding which will go toward community building activities.
