NKY Community Action Commission launches single-parent scholar program


The Northern Kentucky Community Action Commission (NKCAC) is now accepting applications for enrollment in a new program that will provide education, support and housing assistance for single parents who are pursuing a college degree.
 
Lincoln Grant Scholar House (LGSH) will open this December at 824 Greenup Street in Covington, a building that formerly served African-American students from 1932 to 1965, when the state desegregated all public schools. The building has been redesigned to house at least 45 parents and 68 children annually through the LGSH program.
 
LGSH applicants must be Kentucky residents who are enrolled full-time in a college degree program, with priority given to U.S. military veterans and single-parent families at risk due to toxic stress or domestic violence.
 
Phone and in-person screenings are now being scheduled. Interested applicants should call (859) 581-6607 or (859) 655-2987 and ask to speak to a Lincoln Grant Scholar House staff person.
