The Mon Valley Alliance Foundation, the Greater Charleroi Community Development Corporation, and several nonprofits and business partners announced details and funding for the first Neighborhood Partnership Program in the Mid Mon Valley, a six-year plan that will drive $1.5 million into Charleroi for community improvement projects and social services.
It includes strategies to improve housing for seniors and the disabled, fostering main street and economic development, and expanding community services including those for the town’s growing immigrant population. Funds will be used to engage key community partners to deliver program services and projects in these areas.
Funders for the NPP are Fourth Street Barbecue, LaCarte Enterprises, Key Bank, and UPMC Health Plan. Collectively, the four companies will provide $250,000 annually for the next six years to fund the plan.
