Elevate Lebanon Awarded Grant
Elevate Lebanon has been awarded a grant from the Missouri Housing Trust fund. The Laclede County Commission received a letter from Elevate Lebanon thanking the commission for their letter of support which could have been a deciding factor in receiving that grant. Elevate Lebanon is a program with services that reach out to Lebanon working for poor families on the brink of poverty, and individuals who lost their way in life. The total grant awarded was $77- thousand dollars which was 30 percent of what Elevate Lebanon requested. Presiding County Commissioner Randy Angst read that letter at the meeting.
This was the first time that Elevate Lebanon has been awarded funding from the Missouri Housing Trust fund.
