PRPC to receive block grant

The Panhandle Regional Planning Commission has received $100,000 from the Community Development Block Grant.

The money will be used for the Workforce Solutionâ??s Child Care program.

The program is for parents who are working or who are going to school but are low income.

The program is popular.

They have a 500 family waiting list.

Pam Zenick of Workforce Development says, "the 100-thousand dollars we asked for will be matched two to one with federal dollars."
