LANSING, Mich. — Senate Majority Floor Leader Peter MacGregor on Friday applauded Michigan Community Action for its efforts to help the state’s underserved achieve economic stability and self-sufficiency.
“Throughout Michigan, community action agencies work every day to change the lives of our state’s underserved, helping them to break down barriers and achieve success,” said MacGregor, R-Rockford. “I am proud to support Michigan Community Action and its agencies across the state and am happy to partner with them as we all work to serve our fellow Michiganders in need.”
The organization recently announced MacGregor as its 2019 legislator of the year for his efforts to help fund the Northeast Michigan Community Service Agency’s School Success Partnership Program. The program helps school-aged children overcome conditions that foster truancy and dropping out of school.
“To be named legislator of the year by Michigan Community Action is an incredible honor,” MacGregor said. “It is a reminder of the importance of the work that we do here and the impact that it has on those for whom we serve.”
Michigan Community Action is an association of 28 federally designated agencies that help low-income residents throughout the state to become more economically stable and self-sufficient.
