The Natalie P. Voorhees Center for Neighborhood and Community Improvement has received funding from the Department of Defense’s Office of Local Defense Community Cooperation (OLDCC) to continue its work of building resiliency in the defense manufacturing sector in Illinois.

This one million dollar ($1,000,000.00) Phase III Grant will fund the work of the center and its partners for 18 months (between January 1, 2021 and June 30, 2022), and is a follow-up to the $2.4 million Phase II Grant that ended in August 2020.

The UIC Voorhees Center and the Illinois Defense Network (IDN) partners are very grateful for the continued support by the Office of Local Defense Community Cooperation (OLDCC), DOD.
