Grant loss leaves Rise Up! in dire need
Rise Up! for Kids, Johnson City’s grassroots after school and youth mentoring program for under-resourced children, has lost a large, recurring grant that has provided approximately 40 percent its budget for the past 12 years. In the wake of the grant loss, Rise Up! has slashed its budget by 25 percent, implemented across the board pay cuts and begun spreading the word of its dire need for community support to prevent a reduction of its programs.
