Shelby Announces $247,500 for Montgomery YMCA

U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-AL), a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Economic Development Initiative will release $247,500 to the Montgomery YMCA.  Senator Shelby was instrumental in securing these funds during the fiscal year 2006 appropriations process. 

“For many years, Montgomery’s YMCA has been an educational center for at-risk youth in our state’s capital,” said Senator Shelby.  “This funding will allow the Montgomery YMCA to make much needed enhancements to the nearly 50 year old structures at the Cleveland Avenue facilities.  The Montgomery YMCA has served children by providing educational and cultural opportunities.  I hope these improvements will allow the Cleveland Avenue YMCA to serve the community for generations to come.”
