Urban League Receives State Farm Good Neighbor Citizenship Grant Award

Each year in Louisiana, State Farm bestows Good Neighbor grant awards to local organizations stating that strong neighborhoods are the foundation of a strong society. State Farm is committed to maintaining the vibrancy of communities by assisting nonprofits that support: affordable housing, first time homeowners, neighborhood revitalization, financial literacy, job training, and small business development. Through community outreach and community development grants and investments, State Farm gives back to the neighborhoods it serves and helps develop stronger neighborhoods by reinvesting in the community. The Urban League’s Office of Workforce Development is proud to be a recipient of the Good Neighbor Citizenship Grant awards again this year. Funds from the grant will be used to assist workforce participants in the attainment of workforce fundamentals training, adult basic education and job skills training.
