Bank of America is giving out thousands of dollars in grants to local community organizations.
On Wednesday, the bank announced $56,000 in grants to seven local nonprofits to help families, young people, and other members of the community.
The grants are for workforce development and education with the goal of helping people improve their overall economic condition.
One of those organizations on the receiving end is the Community Action Partnership of San Luis Obispo County (CAPSLO).
The organization received $15,000 to fund 40 Prado, the ECHO shelter, and the 5 Cities Homeless Coalition.
“Our whole focus is to work with individuals on the brink and so funds will go to all three of our organizations primarily to assist us in increasing our volunteer engagement, so our outreach to volunteers,” said Grace McIntosh, CAPSLO Deputy Director.
Some of the other organizations receiving funds include the Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo County, the Cal Poly Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, and the Cuesta College Foundation.
