The Cincinnati Public School District purchases a wide variety of services, materials and equipment.

The Supplier Diversity Program, under direction of Pamela Mullins, is working hard to expand the opportunities for minority-owned, female-owned and small businesses enterprises to participate in this process.

The recent example of the success of this program is a $5,374,000 contract awarded to a Hispanic-owned company, Blau Mechanical Inc. that will do HVAC work for Withrow High School.

The Cincinnati-Hamilton County Community Action Agency, CAA, held its 6th annual legislative breakfast on June 3, 2005 at the Vernon Manor Hotel.

The annual breakfast gives CAA the opportunity to share its successes and to inform elected officials about its exciting new initiatives. Elected officials, or their representatives, from the federal, state, county and city levels of government were represented.

CAA Board member, Mr. V. Anthony Simms-Howell encouraged our elected officials to support the agency on two major legislative issues:

1) Support the reauthorization of the Community Service Block Grant, CSBG, of $636.6 million for fiscal year 2006. The agency’s CSBG budget is $1.7 million.

2) Support the reauthorization of Head Start at the current funding level and reject any proposal to dismantle and/or reduce its current performance standard requirements.

“We help make things happen” is the vision statement of the CAA; and the agency has been doing just that for 40 years. CAA is the second oldest in the nation serving 25,000 low-income individuals and families each year. Through its Community Services, Head Start, and Weatherization programs the agency has a holistic and integrated approach to help the region low-to moderate-income residents empower themselves and become self-sufficient. This is the core to the mission and key to its success.

Gwen L. Robinson is the President/CEO and Mr. Mark B. Lawson, Esq. is the Board Chair. For further information about the agency and its services, please contact
