GECAC Accepting Tuition Scholarship Applications by Mike Iverson

The Greater Erie Community Action Committee is an action agency dedicated to the advancement of our community as a whole by attempting to address the needs of low-income families in our area. The committee aims to eliminate poverty in our region by providing opportunities for affordable education, job training, and work placement. The goals of the committee are founded in the belief that if our community is to grow and improve it must do so as one body.

Most recently GECAC has begun to accept applications for tuition assistance scholarships for children attending private elementary, middle school, and high school in Erie County. Scholarship priority will be determined by family income level, receipt of previous scholarships, and application date. For more on the eligibility guidelines for application, visit www.gecac.org, or their headquarters at 18 W. 9th St.

GECAC has been supporting low-income families in our community since 1965, and they hope to continue to build on their strong foundation of community service as time goes on. This most recent scholarship assistance program represents an excellent opportunity for struggling families to secure a private education for their children, and GECAC expects to receive a multitude of applications.
