ARRA funds stimulate Bloomington Ford

new vanThe South Central Community Action Program has purchased three new trucks from Bloomington Ford using funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).

The new Ford Escapes will be used by energy auditors in SCCAP’s Weatherization Program, which has received ARRA funds to provide energy efficiency improvements to 150 homes in Monroe County. These ARRA funds come from the U.S. Department of Energy through the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority.

Pictured in the photo above (from left to right) are  SCCAP Energy Auditor Frank Peacock, Bloomington Ford Commercial Sales Specialist Sam Roberts, SCCAP Weatherization Manager Bryan Berkley and SCCAP Energy Auditor Jason Hickman.

Peacock and Hickman are new employees that SCCAP was able to hire using the ARRA funds. They are among five new employees hired in the SCCAP Weatherization Program with the stimulus funds.

Thank you ARRA!
