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 SolutionĂ¢??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."
