The Johnson County Commissioners, at their meeting Tuesday, approved a request from the Community Resouce Center to apply for a Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) Grant in the amount of $55,387.
The money, if awarded to the county, will be used for extended hours of daycare at the Buffalo Children's Center.
Toni Cervenka, with the CRC, explains further.
The commissioners voted to allow the Chairman to sign the application for the grant when it is completed.
According to their website, the TANF program provides assistance and work opportunities to needy families by granting local entities the federal funds to develop and implement their own welfare programs. The assistance promotes work, responsibility and self-sufficiency.
