Posted: Friday, February 19, 2021

The Huntington County Community Foundation (HCCF) awarded Friends of the Huntington City-Township Public Library a $3,350 grant towards the purchase of an internet tutoring service provided to libraries through “Tutor.com, A Service of The Princeton Review.”

This online program provides free tutoring services to students, adult learners and jobseekers. Areas of learning include math, science, social studies, language arts, writing, world languages, ACT Prep, PSAT Prep, SAT Prep, AP courses, computer literacy and job search assistance.

The Huntington House also received a grant award in the amount of $807 from the Huntington County Community Foundation (HCCF), which will be applied towards needed repairs at the home. Recently completing its 2020 Cycle II Grant Program, HCCF awarded over $52,698 in grant funds to 15 charitable organizations serving Huntington County.

Love INC’s also received a grant in the amount of $3,971.57 from HCCF. The grant funds were used towards a much-needed phone system which allows for quick and efficient service to their clients. Each month 30 volunteers and two staff members put in over 700 hours of service at Love INC to ensure that people are connected to the programs and services they need.

The HCCF Cycle I Grant Program is now open. Applications are available online via the HCCF website: www.huntingtonccf.org/grants/hccf-grant-application. Due date is April 15. For more information, contact the Huntington County Community Foundation office by calling (260) 356-8878, or send an email to Jo Ellen Bradley at jo@huntingtonccf.org.
