Network Coordinator

c    The group discussed the MVRN contract and allocation levels. ICHH grant fund allocation will remain the same as indicated in the table below. The $25,000 allocation from United Way may be used across the Merrimack Valley. Recently, United Way awarded CTI and GLCAC (each) $45K which is funding exclusive to Lowell and Lawrence. Given the fact that Lowell and Lawrence have been allocated additional ($25K) United Way funds, it was determined that the MVRN United Way allocation be “earmarked” for use, exclusively within the Haverhill region.

c    Network members were also informed as to the structure of referrals and pass through procedures and advised that intake/referral packets for application of MVRN/ICHH funds would be forthcoming via email to Network.
