Federal stimulus dollars benefit Rock and Walworth counties
Executive Director of Community Action of Rock and Walworth Counties, Marc Perry, says the money comes through a Community Service Block Grant.
The basic purpose of the money is to get unemployed residents back into the work force. He says they will try to accomplish this through new and existing programs like job development and training, housing assistance, housing rehabilitation, counseling, and a fatherhood initiative.
The $486,576.00 will fund programs through September of 2010.
