The Green River Area Development District received a $120,000 grant for the continued work of the Benefits Enrollment Center.

The grant comes from the National Council on Aging.

“The Benefits Enrollment Center is a tremendous resource for seniors and disabled individuals in the GRADD communities,” said Leslie Wilson, GRADD Community Services Manager.

The Benefits Enrollment Center has 80 locations across the country, all with a focus of connecting limited income Medicare beneficiaries with:

  • Medicare Part D Extra Help/Low-Income Subsidy (LIS)
  • Medicare Savings Programs
  • Medicaid
  • Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP - formerly known as Food Stamps)
  • Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program

Individuals interested in a Benefits CheckUp screening, or organizations that would like to schedule an outreach event can contact the GRADD office at 1-800-928-9094.

It was another chilly start across the Tri-State; while we only dipped as low as 43° in Evansville, many others across the Tri-State fell into the upper 30s earlier this morning. The cool air didn't linger long however, temperatures quickly reached back into the mid 70s across the region this afternoon - higher pressure camped out over the southeastern quarter of the country will continue to keep the skies above the Tri-State clear while gradually driving temperatures higher over the next few days. Despite our anticipated southerly winds this evening, you may still want to grab a jacket before your head out to dinner; after seeing a temperature near 64° around dinnertime, we'll fall off toward the mid to upper 50s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will again dwindle into the mid to low 40s for the majority of the Ohio Valley early Tuesday morning.
