Olympic Community Action Programs (OlyCAP) has received a grant of $200,000 from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to support the purchase of its administrative offices.

The new facilities have had a major impact on service levels. The number of families served grew by more than 50 percent following the move to the new facility.
