Greene County Senior Issues Grant Applications Open

The Greene County Senior Services Fund Board, which partners with the Community Foundation of the Ozarks, is now accepting applications for projects that will improve the well-being of senior citizens in Greene County.

This grant cycle will offer up to $80,000. It represents the third year of collaboration between the Senior Services Fund Board, which administers the public tax funds, and the CFO’s private donor funds designated for senior issues. Both organizations share a mutual goal of improving health, nutrition and quality of life for Greene County residents ages 60 and above.

Information on how to apply for the grant is available at this link:

The deadline for applications is 5 p.m., Friday, Feb. 28, 2014.

The members of the Seniors Services Fund Board, which will review the proposals, include: Krissy Sinor, Chair; Denny Pilant, Vice-Chair; Ed Smith, Treasurer; Joyce Munden, Secretary; Mary Fry, and Chuck Marinec.

The Greene County Senior Services Fund Board was created after county voters in 2005 approved a levy of $0.05 per $100 of assessed valuation to provide services to residents aged 60 and over.
