"We need to spend this money," said Dottie Stricklin Community Service Manager. "Because if we don't spend it all, then our funding could get cut some next year. We don't want that to happen. Because we know there are people who have not been assisted. You need to make sure you come on out here."
SEACAP met with hundreds Monday helping them work through the process.
If you missed Monday's meeting, another one is scheduled for October 7th at 9 am.
The address is 601 N St. Andrews St. Dothan, AL 36301.
