Nonprofit seeks support for youth program
The head of a local nonprofit appeared before the Mayor and Board of Aldermen on Aug. 17 seeking help with an effort to receive a federal grant.
James Dunn, representing the Tunica County Community Development Coalition, said his organization recently applied for a grant from the Department of Planning and Safety.
“In order to make the application, we need an organization to agree to sponsor it,” Dunn said.
The grant would cover costs for a Youth Entrepreneurship program that exposes kids to writing a business plan and running a business, Dunn said. The program features guest speakers and hands on experience. It operates on a part-time basis.
