The Kentucky Coalition Against Domestic Violence received two grants this week.
Verizon has made a $20,000 grant to the KCADV Economic Empowerment program. The funds will be used to support financial education classes, credit counseling, Individual Development Accounts, and microloans for survivors served by the state’s 15 regional domestic violence programs and state community college system. The program serves 2,600 participants annually.
Additionally, the Allstate Foundation recognized KCADV with a $5,000 Mentor Grant, through which KCADV staff members will share their experience and resources with new Allstate grantees. The Allstate Foundation provided longstanding support during the development of KCADV’s nationally recognized Economic Empowerment Program.
