WAGAP Benefiting From New State Funding

Washington Gorge Action Programs in Klickitat and Skamania counties will benefit after the Washington State Community Action Partnership secured $7.3 million of state funding in 2022 as a match to federal Community Service Block Grant funding.  The funding helps Washington State’s 30 Community Action Agencies to stabilize and equip families and individuals to exit poverty for good through a network of local organizations.  The new $108,032 of funding for WAGAP will help support a new associate director to provide outreach and the new Mobile Food Bank, which reaches deeper into rural areas to ensure families have food security.  It will also help WAGAP offer stipends for bi-lingual staff fluent in Spanish and English.  Only 23 states have state and federal Community Service Block Grant program, and Washington is the only state to achieve fund matching.
