Grant requests approved by DD board

Monday, July 23, 2012

Members of the Lawrence County Tax Board for the Developmentally Disabled (LCDD) awarded four grant requests at their June meeting.

Monett Area Workshop received funding in the amount of $5,500 to help cover a shortfall from the state's current budget that has impacted funding for the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, which helps support the Workshop.

Community Support Services, which provides for Lawrence County recipients, received $4,800 for two additional clients.

Champion Athletes, which provides individuals with an opportunity to participate in a bowling program with their peers and individuals from neighboring counties, was awarded $1,000 for that program.

People First, a non-profit organization that promotes equality for people with disabilities so they can live the life they want in the community, was awarded $1,000.

George Woodward, LCDD director, reported the Magic Moments Horse Therapy program in Hoberg had closed, but clients can still receive those services at the primary facility in Diamond.

The center also purchased two iPads for in-house use only.

The next meeting of the LCDD board is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 21 at the center, located at 403 E. Elm St. in Aurora.
