Breaking News: $50k Grant Awarded Today to Clay County

Nantahala Health Foundation awarded a $50,000 grant to Clay County to grow future EMTs and Paramedics. The award will provide for an EMT mentor/trainer. This will be a partnership with Clay County Schools (and schools throughout the far west), Tri-County Community College and the CPP to recruit students to become EMTs. The mentor/trainer will follow students throughout their studies, ensuring they successfully complete training and find placement locally, where the need is greatest.

Clay County previously received funding in the amount of $100,000 from a Dogwood Health Trust Opioid Planning Grant to provide selected students with full tuition and an internship stipend to ensure the program gets the highest quality candidates and keeps them.
