Erie Community Foundation And United Way of Erie County team up

News

Thanks to an unprecedented collaboration between United Way of Erie County and The Erie Community Foundation, a grant of $1.2 million dollars was awarded to the Greater Erie Community Action Committee (GECAC).

The 3 year grant will be used by GECAC to implement the Unified Erie plan for a community call-in strategy and provide assistance to at-risk youth and ex-offenders interested in reentering civil society.

Erie Community Foundation president Mike Batchelor says this is the first time both organizations have joined forces to jointly fund a high-need community project.

A news conference will be held this morning at 10am in West Perry Square to officially make the grant announcement.
