Poverty Program Coming Our Way

A program aimed at reducing poverty in North-Central Florida is about to move into its third round of communities. Twenty-one towns are currently in the Horizons program. Four were in the first stage, and 15 more are now going to benefit from the program.

The program trains community leaders on ways to improve the local economy, increase community pride and fight poverty. The effort is funded by the North Central Area Foundation and administered by the University of Florida Cooperative Extension Service.

Project Director Marcy Fuentes says the application deadline for people in the community who want to take part in this program starts the first of November.
