A portion of these funds will enhance their programming for youth, youth with disabilities and their families to access computers, attend educational programs, and access resource materials based upon individual needs. The funding will also assist in covering administrative costs and program development to ensure that the community can meet the gaps in service for the youth and families in Columbiana County. NCA/NCF
