The Board of Directors of the United Way of NNY has awarded a $4,000 grant to the Mental Health Association of Jefferson County.

The board postponed awarding a grant to MHAJC in June following a recommendation from a Community Review team that asked the agency refine its grant application.

MHAJC Executive Director Korin Scheible recently met with the United Way board to request money for the agency’s program that helps clients learn healthy eating choices, and offers restaurant kitchen training that can lead to employment.

With the additional grant, the United Way awarded a total of $441,511 this year to nonprofits in Jefferson, St. Lawrence and Lewis counties.
