October is here, and our new grant season is in full swing! We have added new services to our self-sufficiency programs, and we are excited to have some new community partners! Our federal poverty guidelines have gone back to 125% of the 2021 HHS FPL. This is down from the COVID-19 era 200%. Our goal this year is to serve 95 individuals!
Our commitment to our communities is to increase the capacity of poverty-fighting organizations in Northwest Wyoming. We are also mandated to ensure individuals and families with low incomes are stable and achieve economic security. The best way to address the complexity of the issues of poverty is to ensure customers have access to intensive case management and whole family approach services. As a requirement of services, applicants will be referred by a community partner providing them with case management services addressing the root causes of their economic issues.
We will provide financial assistance to meet basic needs such as food, shelter, clothing, and healthcare services. Additionally, we provide services that help customers overcome barriers to employment, education, other services that lead to economic independence!
