State Senator Rusty Crowe (R-Johnson City) announces that four senior citizen centers in Senate District 3 have received grants from the Tennessee Commission on Aging and Disability (TCAD). Following a competitive grant process, TCAD distributed $8,000 grants to 125 senior centers across Tennessee.
“I am very pleased that these senior centers in my district completed successful grant applications and will receive an $8,000 grant from TCAD,” said Crowe. “I was proud to support their applications as well as the funding for these grants in our state budget, which will help provide much needed resources to facilities tasked with the very important job of taking care of our aging citizens. I congratulate these four senior centers on securing grants and appreciate TCAD for administering the funds.
”The funding for these grants was allocated by the Tennessee General Assembly this year, which appropriated $1,000,000 for senior centers across the state in the state budget. Senior citizen centers in Senate District 3 receiving grants include: Elizabethton Senior Center, Johnson City Senior Center, Johnson County Senior Center, and Jonesborough Senior Center.
