Program to receive grant


March 11, 2020

The Curry County Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) will receive a $47,500 grant from The Corporation for National and Community Service as part of its 2020 grant competition.

The Fiscal Year 2020 Senior Corps RSVP grant selected five award winners in New Mexico to receive funds.

According to a press release from RSVP, the program has been active in the Curry County area since 1986 and is part of one of the U.S.' largest networks for people 55 and older.

Volunteers in the program offer several programs to the elderly and the disabled, including free tax preparation, meal deliveries, serving at pantries and food banks and providing support at senior centers.

There are 97 volunteers in the Curry County program.
