Clinton County Community Action, through funds provided by CSBG CARES, will be accepting application for iPads and tablets for both senior citizens and families.
The implementation of this project was due to issues created by COVID-19. Social distancing made it difficult for senior citizens to visit with family and/or friends as well as some physicians moving to virtual doctor appointments leaving them with no visual contact for extended periods.
Families with children found themselves attending classes virtually and, in some cases, had the same issues with doctor appointments.
Community Action anticipates working with local youth to provide training on use and learning the skills need to operate the iPads/tablets.
There is an application process and income guidelines. This will be first-approved/first-served while the units last. If anyone is interested in applying, they must contact Community Action at 937-382-8365.
