LHDC BRINGING POVERTY AWARENESS AND RESOURCES SERIES TO PERRY, SPENCER, AND CRAWFORD COUNTIES
LHDC is set to partner with local and state agencies to share poverty awareness and resources throughout 2021.
Tell City, IN, July 26, 2021 – In October 2020, Lincoln Hills Development Corporation (LHDC) was awarded a grant by the Perry County Community Foundation in conjunction with the seventh phase of the Lilly Endowment Inc. Giving Indiana Funds for Tomorrow (GIFT VII) initiative.
Emily Alvey, Regional Director of Community Engagement and Impact (Perry County Community Foundation), stated, "when determining where to focus our implementation grant efforts, the Perry County Community Foundation advisory board chose to emphasize the cycle of poverty to benefit the residents, businesses, organizations, and the Perry County community."
Lincoln Hills Development Corporation will utilize the Perry County Community Foundation funds to host two virtual workshops for the Perry County community. The first session will include poverty-related statistics for Perry County. The follow-up session will provide an opportunity to discuss local resources and referral mechanisms and allow participants an opportunity to network with their peers.
