Business Council board approves community grant requests

The Wyoming Business Council Board of Directors approved five Community Development Block Grants during its Jan. 8 special meeting in Cheyenne.

About $2.1 million was granted to Yoder, Gillette, Laramie, Dubois and Mills for projects that serve low- to moderate-income residents. This is federal money from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The Board also allowed the city of Cheyenne to use $400,000 from a previous grant request to move the F.E. Warren Air Force Base infrastructure project forward. The money will be used for geotechnical testing and infrastructure design.

For more information, check out the meeting materials here.

The Board will hold its next regular meeting March 4-5 in Greybull.
