9.22.14: Grant money to help Muskegon non-profit
MUSKEGON, Mich. (AP) — Michigan officials have awarded $2.1 million in grants to a western Michigan nonprofit organization that provides services for seniors and disabled residents.
Pioneer Resources director Greg Scott says the Muskegon-based group used the state Department of Transportation grants to buy 15 buses and retire a fleet of 10. He says the new buses provide more space for clients who use wheelchairs.
The nonprofit offers specialized housing, job training and recreational programs and provides transportation to clients. Scott says the group serves about 1,350 people each day during the school year.
He says Pioneer Resources expects the department to give another $300,000 to install GPS technology in the new buses.
