AREA FIVE AGENCY ON AGING AND COMMUNITY SERVICES, INC.
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA)Request for Funding for Quality Improvement for Area Five Agency Head Start. In utilizing ARRA funds to the best possible end, Area Five will replace the HVAC system, and update electrical components at the Rochester, Indiana site. This will ensure energy efficiency and negate the problem of finding the extra money within the regular continuation grant to fund a maintenance cost of this size. Additionally, to exhaust the remaining $1386.07 balance, Area Five will purchase engineered mulch to supplement the required 9 inches of soft medium in the fall spaces of the Akron site playground in Fulton County in Indiana. This will utilize the total amount of the ARRA funds awarded to Area Five Agency Head Start Program.
