Grant funding is becoming more available and a DeWitt County non-profit leader is focusing on trying to secure grants to help in some areas of need.
On the WHOW Morning Show Thursday, DeWitt County Friendship Center Executive Director Paula Jiles told Regional Radio News the Friendship Center is hoping funding from the ARPA money the County is offering to non-profits and small businesses can help them afford a new van.
Jiles has discovered that restaurant chain Chik-Fil-A has a grant program that non-profits can apply for. She is seeking $30,000 from that opportunity to upgrade the agency van they have.
Jiles says her priority is the roof of the Friendship Center but there are other areas of need they will be addressing. She indicates any funding through grants is less of the Friendship Center budget they have to dedicate to those expenses.
