CiC was awarded federal funding in the amount of $125,000 for five and potentially ten years, along with significant funding from the Horizon Foundation. Local concerned citizens are also firmly behind our work and are robust supporters. Several local pharmaceutical companies are also supporting areas of CiC’s work.
