STEP UP NORTHERN MICHIGAN RECEIVES $15,000.00 Grant from the Grand Traverse Regional Community Foundation
Step Up Northern Michigan is humbled and grateful for the confidence that the Grand Traverse Regional Community Foundation has placed in our efforts to continue to serve our most vulnerable student population throughout the five county region.
Due to a cut in Federal Title I funding, the S.T.E.P. (Students Transitioning in Education Program) staff hour’s were cut in half. This comes at a time when outreach is very critical to the success of our at-risk student population. This $15,000.00 along with a $15,000.00 donation from Step Up Northern Michigan and $5,000.00 from TCAPS will enable these three employees to return to full time status.
Thank you to the generous donors who continue to support the success of our great community!
