Eaton County receives funds from Competitive Grant Assistance Program

 

LANSING— The Michigan Department of Treasury has announced that 32 Michigan communities will receive Competitive Grant Assistance Program (CGAP) funding, totaling more than $10.5 million, in the second round of awards for fiscal year 2012. Nearly half of this round of funding was designated for public safety initiatives.

Delta Charter Township received $30,000 in order to assist with the continued consolidation with the Looking Glass Regional Fire Authority.

“I am thrilled that Eaton County was able to receive some extra funds to help with the transition,” said state Sen. Jones, R-Grand Ledge. “These grants have already proven to be vital in helping local municipalities; I would like to thank the governor for making these funds available.”
