PA Public Utility Commission recognizes CPC with first Outstanding Community Partner Award


Community Progress Council was pleased to attend the 2023 Tri-Region Be Utility Wise human services conference, and to be celebrated with Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission‘s first ever Outstanding Community Partner Award, based on our work to distribute resources to families through the Emergency Rental Assistance Program.

Community Progress Council is proud to be the trusted partner that York County can count on in times of crisis. Thank you to Tammy Ravier and Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania for nominating our team!

Although ERAP was a temporary program to address the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, we remain committed to providing comprehensive, integrated services that can help York County families achieve longer-term economic self-sufficiency.

We will carry on this good work through our housing and financial education and counseling services, alongside all of the programs we offer, to help families achieve their housing and self-sufficiency goals.
