Galion to Receive $300,000 Downtown Revitalization Grant
The Ohio Development Services Agency awarded 11 communities grants totaling more than $4.8 million through the Community Development Downtown Revitalization and Neighborhood Revitalization Competitive Set-Aside programs. The grants will improve streets, sidewalks, bridges, public facilities, and infrastructure as well as rehabilitate buildings in a community’s Central Business District.
“Strong business districts and safe neighborhoods lead to growth,” said David Goodman, director of the Ohio Development Services Agency.
Crawford County will receive a $300,000 Downtown Revitalization grant to help the city of Galion improve buildings in its downtown district. The grant will help the owners of 20 buildings update code violations and improve their building façades. The project will benefit 10,620 people.
