Mattoon in Motion is still in Motion! After winning the Google.org grant, many new exciting opportunities have sprouted.
Volunteers have been working nonstop behind the scenes, and we are on the right track for the completion of the Cross County Innovation Center (CCIC).
At this time we want to thank all the hard work each volunteer has offered in the development of the (CCIC). Stay tuned for when we start to renovate our space.
Not only are we making progress towards the CCIC volunteers in other committees are working towards projects to make Mattoon and the surrounding area great! The Tourism, Parks and Rec, and housing committees are all meeting and making progress towards many objectives.
We have created a housing resource guideline for citizens of Coles County to easily find out if they qualify for the many housing programs in the area.
