Garden Program Begins April 9!

The Community Action Garden Program is designed to encourage economic self-support by providing low-income households with the essential materials to start growing a vegetable garden.

Eligible program participants receive a voucher from Community Action of Southern Kentucky, Inc.  The voucher can be used to purchase garden products, such as, garden seeds, garden plants, and/or fertilizers.

Scholarships available!

As you prepare for the fall term of post-secondary education, we at Community Action of Southern Kentucky, Inc. prepare for another year of our CSBG Scholarship Program.  Last year, we awarded ten thousand dollars in scholarships.  It is our intent to award two $1000 scholarships in hopes of assisting individuals and families in removing themselves from poverty in each county.
