Appalachian Regional Commission Awards $498,961 to Piedmont Regional Community Services Board for Substance Abuse Recovery Programs
The Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) today awarded $498,961 to the Piedmont Regional Community Services Board, based in Martinsville, to develop a substance abuse recovery ecosystem and remove barriers to obtaining employment for those recovering from substance abuse. Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) issued the following statement:
“Substance abuse can throw a person’s life off track, but the disruption does not need to be permanent. Helping those in recovery enter or reenter the workforce is an important step forward for them and allows local employers to benefit from their talents. Today’s ARC award of $498,961 to the Piedmont Regional Community Services Board will help develop recovery programs and aid individuals in the region on the path from substance abuse to workforce entry.”
ARC awarded this grant as part of its INvestments Supporting Partnerships In Recovery Ecosystems (INSPIRE) initiative.
