Clinton downtown project lands $100,000 grant

CLINTON — A downtown Clinton rehabilitation project for a structure on South Second Street has received grant funding from the State of Iowa.

A building at 512 S. Second St. has been the subject of the project at the hands of the Downtown Clinton Alliance, and it was announced Thursday that the initiative will now receive $100,000 as part of Gov. Kim Reynolds' "Catalyst Funding to Rejuvenate Downtowns Across Iowa" program.

Statewide, the program dished out $2.9 million to similar projects. In total, 29 communities were on the receiving end of grant money for the 2019 cycle, of which 16 have populations fewer than 1,500, according to a release from Reynolds' office.

A complete story on the award can be found in Saturday's edition of The Clinton Herald.
