Department of Economic Development Grant

The Department of Economic Development has announced that it will award more than $9 million in tax credits through the Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) to 46 organizations for community development projects statewide. Among those to receive NAP tax credits is Citizens Against Domestic Violence in Camden County—Executive Director of Citizens Against Domestic Violence Sheree Keely on what her organization provides.

Camdenton Citizens Against Domestic Violence (CADV) will use NAP tax credits to support the transitional housing program and address the current critical need for transitional housing services. It will also help them hire a full-time employee to oversee and implement the project who can help form the relationships and write the policies and procedures necessary to obtain long-term federal funding for the transitional housing program. Sheree says the grant will give them funding to help out other counties.

For more information on how a person can take advantage of the credits or other questions, folks can call Sheree at 573-745-1344.
