DAILY REPORT
The Buffalo Legacy Project, which is focused on designing a modern, multi-purpose athletic field for residents in South Buffalo, will receive a $200,000 grant from the Buffalo Bills as part of the National Football League Grassroots Program, it was announced yesterday.

The grant, awarded by the Bills, the NFL Youth Football Fund and Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), is part of $2.5 million in field refurbishment awards allocated this year. It will be used to install a new synthetic turf field at Mulroy Park, which will be one element of a multipurpose recreation and community facility featuring football, health and wellness programs, and education spaces.

On behalf of the NFL Youth Football Fund and the Buffalo Bills, over one million dollars in grants have been awarded to community facilities since 1998.
