ST. JAMES—The Meramec Regional Planning Commission (MRPC), Phelps County Public Housing Authority (PHA) Family Self-Sufficiency Program and the Missouri Ozarks Community Action (MOCA) will host a free workshop on energy savings Jan. 14.
The workshop will be held from 10 a.m. to noon at MRPC, 4 Industrial Dr., St. James, and will be presented by MOCA County Project Coordinator Robert Morris.
The workshop is offered at no cost to the participant, and each participant will learn about saving energy, cutting utility bills and other valuable money-saving information. Please RSVP by calling Linda Hollandsworth at 573-265-4200 ext. 132.
Free training classes are a part of the MRPC and PHA’s efforts to help prepare families who are first-time homebuyers for homeownership and make them aware of the resources available to assist with homeownership. These workshops are a part of MRPC’s outreach efforts in partnership with senior citizen housing groups and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Des Moines, which assists with grant funds to renovate senior citizen housing complexes throughout the region.
Persons needing more information may call Hollandsworth at 573-265-4200 ext. 132.
