Default Logo - Newsflash

Linn County distributed more than $250,000 this week to local human service agencies that address important community needs, such as: 

  • Food insecurities
  • Housing
  • Adult and child health/dental care
  • Domestic violence
  • Recidivism
  • Transportation

The funding comes from Linn County Community Services (LCCS), which is a Linn County department whose mission is to address local health and human service needs through direct services, community planning, and administration of local, state, and federal funds.
