FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ST. MARTIN CENTER, INC. RECEIVES RECORD TAX CREDIT AWARD

     St. Martin Center, Inc., a Catholic Charities organization, was awarded a grant of $235,000 through the Neighborhood Assistance Program.  This is a record-breaking tax credit award and is made possible only through the incredible generosity of several local companies including: Calypso Enterprise, Eriez Magnetics, Northwest Bank, Erie Insurance, UPMC Health Plan, Marquette Savings Bank, and PNC Bank.  As our CEO, David González, states “the Neighborhood Assistance Program represents a true private-public sector collaboration and we could not be as impactful without their support.”

     These dollars are crucial to SMC’s mission of assisting Erie County families especially during this pandemic recovery period. This award will be used to prevent homelessness by providing rent, mortgage, and utility assistance to people like Mark, who said rent assistance “has been a tremendous help given the financial hardship that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused.”   Also, it will increase access to services via deliveries or enhanced online services.
