CAP Services Receives US Bank Grant to Support Skills Enhancement Program

December 21, 2012 – Stevens Point, WI – WISCAP member agency CAP Services, serving Marquette, Outagamie, Portage, Waupaca and Waushara counties, has been awarded a $1,500 grant from US Bank to support its Skills Enhancement Program.

CAP Services’ Skills Enhancement Program helps working-poor families increase their earned income and have access to employer-paid benefits. CAP Services began offering the program in Outagamie County in 1991 and has since expanded to Portage, Waupaca and Waushara counties.
