The Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) offers ways for businesses to assist nonprofits in meeting the challenges of funding local projects that benefit communities, especially low-income families. The Bucks County Opportunity Council is a participant in the NAP, and we are seeking business partners. The contributing businesses may receive Pennsylvania state tax credits up to 75% for their contribution to the project while helping a Bucks County family leave poverty permanently.

Contact Joe Cuozzo at BCOC jcuozzo@bcoc.org or 215-345-8175 x204 to see if this program will work for your business.

One of the biggest barriers for BCOC's constituents on their pathway to self-sufficiency is the lack of reliable transportation throughout Bucks County. Through BCOC's #Wheelz2Work program, people like Andrew receive roadworthy vehicles to help them continue on their journey out of poverty! Congrats, Andrew!

As the prices of gas, groceries and utilities continue to rise, it can be extremely difficult to save money. Despite these challenges, a determined ES participant reached her goal of saving $1,000 in the ES Matched Savings program!! Now, BCOC will match that savings so the participant will have $2,000 to go towards her auto expenses. One of BCOC's biggest goals is to increase the wealth of our participants. We are so #BCOCProud of this participant and the ES coach that helped her get here!!
