Our Team

Letchworth Gateway Villages is funded through the USDA’s Rural Business Development program along with contributions from each participating municipality and the O’Connell Organization. LGV is supported by a full-time director and is overseen by an advisory group comprised of community, municipal and county leaders from each gateway community.
