By on August 22, 2019

Apple Valley has donated $93,000 to 13 local non-profit agencies

Town Council members made the donation, which will help pay for various social services, during their regular meeting Aug. 13, according to a statement on the town’s website.

Awarded programs include foster youth services, transitional age youth housing, student school supplies, youth activities, fair housing services, homeless shelters and domestic violence shelters.

Apple Valley also plans to donate another $311,000 during the current fiscal year in federal Housing and Urban Development funds for park improvements and the town’s residential rehab loan program.

“The process to select these nonprofits is highly competitive,” Mayor Larry Cusack said in the statement. “Thanks to an evaluation by our community development citizen’s advisory committee, and feedback at public hearings, the town council is able to designate funds that will help hundreds of Apple Valley residents improve their quality of life.”
