An effort is underway to bring good paying energy and renewable energy jobs to the Buffalo Niagara region, it was announced March 24, 2016. The Crossroads Collective said they will pursue their goal with $500,000 a year, thanks to a $4 million grant from the Chorus Foundation. Buffalo will join three other states who have been chosen to pursue this initiative.

She also stated that cultural initiatives will push forward the clean energy message and that money would be available to study who benefits from keeping the status quo.
