SHERMAN, TX--- Dozens of Texoma senior citizens will now have access to dental care.

For the third year in a row, the Texoma Council of Governments'(TCOG) Area Agency on Aging(AAA) has been awarded $100,000 in grant funding from the Livengood Charitable Trust.

TCOG Aging Services Director Karen Bray said the grant money will go towards helping about 100 low-income seniors.

"The majority of our low-income seniors do not have dental assistance or insurance, so this provides the much needed support for these services," Bray said.

Bray said each senior will be given about $1,400 which can be used for dental care, hearing aids and eyewear.

"Dental funding is probably one of the most needed services in the area for seniors because Medicaid and Medicare doesn't pay for dental assistance," Bray said.

Only seniors who are below the 125% income level can qualify for grant money. They also have to be a resident of either Pottsboro, Denison or Sherman and over the age of 60.

For additional information, you can contact Judy Hunt at (903) 813-3505 or email her at jhunt@texoma.cog.tx.us.
