2017 Shelby County Commission Community Enhancement Grant Program
Memphis Oral School for the Deaf receives $7,000!
Memphis Oral School for the Deaf was one of several non-profit organizations in Shelby County to be awarded grant funds for the 2017-2018 year. The Community Enhancement Grant Program was established via Resolution by the Shelby County Board of Commissioners during the FY 2016 Budget on July 6, 2015. Each member of the Shelby County Board of Commissioners have funds available to allocate within their individual districts for non-profit organizations (i.e. 501(c)3 & 501(c)4), as well as some governmental/quasi-governmental agencies. Commissioner Mark Billingsley sponsored Memphis Oral School for the Deaf during this grant cycle in support of our programs serving children who are deaf and hard-of-hearing in Shelby County.
Memphis Oral School for the Deaf is overwhelmingly grateful for the Community Enhancement Grant Program and the continued support of our programs which help deaf children gain the spoken language skills necessary to lead an independent life. We thank you!
