Great news–The Fair Grove Senior Center has been approved for an $18,000 grant from Greene County Senior Citizens’ Services Fund. That grant added to our current building fund balance of $32,400 gets us to our first goal of reaching $50,000. We can now move forward to seek a Community Development Block Grant from the Federal Government. That grant could provide us with $250,000. We are also applying for Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) grant. NAP allows Missouri State taxpayers to allocate a portion of their state taxes for this fund. This grant could be up to $500,000. We think that total will allow us to build our building.
