Watertown Moving Closer on Poverty Grant Programs

WATERTOWN, N.Y. -- The city of Watertown is hoping to move forward with its plan to help fight poverty.

Watertown was one of 16 communities to be awarded a million-dollar state grant. The city had an 80-member task force studying ways to best use that money.

The United Way of Northern New York is in charge of administering the grant. It plans on submitting its phase one of the plan to the state soon.
