Grant funding applications approved for Compass, Big Brothers


SHERIDAN — Sheridan County commissioners approved applications for grant funds from two local organizations serving families in need.

Temporary Assistance for Needy Families grants are distributed annually by the Wyoming Department of Family Services to each of the state's 23 counties. The counties then distribute those funds to organizations that help low-income families become self-sufficient. This year, Greater Wyoming Big Brothers and Big Sisters and the Compass Center for Families applied for funding in Sheridan County.

Compass has applied for $55,000, according to Sheridan County Administrative Director Renee Obermueller, while Big Brothers Big Sisters has applied for $15,000. Compass has also applied for $25,000 in TANF funds from the Johnson County Commission.
