South Central Human Resource Agency (SCHRA) recently helped local Veterans Service Offices, including Wayne County, with $2,000 assistance grants for each county office. This money, which comes from Community Service Block Grant funding, is able to be used by each county’s director as needed to support their county's veterans. The grant money is able to be used for items such as transportation assistance to the VA, medical equipment such as walkers or shower chairs, groceries, and crisis rental assistance. SCHRA states that they are thankful for all of our veterans’ service to our nation, and are honored to be able to give direct assistance to those same veterans.
In April, representatives from SCHRA attended the Town Hall meeting in Waynesboro with U.S. Congressman Dr. Mark Green, representing Tennessee’s 7th District. Congressman Green was gracious enough to be a part of the check presentation to Wayne County Veterans Service Officer John Allen Berry and Wayne County Mayor Jim Mangubat.
