Jay County Community Center seeks grant for Senior Center Expansion.
The Board of the Jay County Community Center unanimously voted on Thursday, January 22nd to seek a grant from the Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA) for the construction of a proposed Senior Center to expand the available space at the center for growing senior programs. Senior programs have experienced 20%+ growth over the last two years and projected population growth of the 55+ market over the next ten years shows a need for expanded space and programming to serve this growing market. On Monday the County Commissioners voted to allow the community center to use one of the two annual grant applications given to the county each year by OCRA. After much discussion the board of directors voted to proceed with the project. If the grant is awarded, construction on the project would be expected to begin in March of 2016.
