Graham Announces Nearly $170,000 to Assist the Elderly and Disabled in Greenville

WASHINGTON -- U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today announced Health Endowment Properties, Inc. in Greenville will receive a $169,956 grant to support housing developments for the elderly and persons with disabilities. “This program will help empower elderly and disabled persons in Greenville County,” said Graham. “It is important that we continue to provide the necessary resources to enable those in need of assistance to remain independent and active participants in the community.” The funds will be used to pay the salary, benefits, and administrative expenses associated with employing a Service Coordinator. A Service Coordinator helps link elderly residents and persons with disabilities to the community based supportive services they need to continue living independently in their homes. ####
