MONTGOMERY - Gov. Kay Ivey has awarded $386,250 to support a network of 20 Community Action Agencies across the state that assist Alabamians by providing programs to reduce and eliminate poverty.
The Community Action Association of Alabama is using the funding to support programs offered by the local agencies to help low-income families improve their lives and achieve self-sufficiency.
This funding will also assist in the functions of the Marion-Winston Community Action Agency (MWCAA).
Jeff Fleming, director of the MWCAA, stated that this is an annual allocation for the agency and he and his staff are currently awaiting to receive notification of the exact amount the program will receive from the grant.
“This is all a part of our annual allocation,” said Fleming. “We’re currently waiting for our notification.”
