Saying it's been the "worst kept secret;" Jason Carr, Executive Director of the Partnership to End Poverty announced that they organization will be ending at the end of 2013.

 

Carr says the Partnership's finding source has tied their hands.  "Part of the issue is that- the grant agreement with the Northwest Area Foundation, we cannot use the remaining dollars that we have for 2013 as an endowment or investment to continue the partnership. Essentially, they wanted the funds to be expended out to help make investments in the region. And so the Board was really as a crossroads, they can't really use this as an investment."

 

Carr says the structure of the organization has changed and its hard to raise money for what they're doing.

 

He adds that they have organized a steering committee to possibly identify another option for the future.
