Twenty six non-profits awarded funds
Goodyear, Ariz. (July 6, 2018) – The Goodyear City Council approved grant funding to 26 non-profits who will share a pot of more than $114,000 this fiscal year – which runs July 1 to June 30, 2019.
The awardees provide food, child and family services, job training, and senior care.
“These services are crucial for some residents,” said Mayor Georgia Lord. “We are grateful these organizations are here to provide them with the support they need.”
One of this year’s first-time grant recipients is Lutheran Social Services of the Southwest.
"The city of Goodyear's generosity will be used to stabilize the lives of neighbors in homelessness through our Interfaith Homeless Emergency Lodging Program (I-HELP)," said Connie Phillips, president and CEO of Lutheran Social Services of the Southwest. "Through partnership with local congregations, Southwest Valley I-HELP serves as an entry point for connections to community resources that help participants move beyond homelessness. We are thankful to the city of Goodyear for their support of this critical need."
Since 2001, the city of Goodyear has provided grants through its Community Funding program to applicants who adhere to set criteria.
