Clark County to receive $268,000 in federal funds for local improvement projects

The former Madison Street School in New Carlisle.

The Clark County Community and Economic Development Department will receive approximately $268,000 in federal grant dollars for two local improvement projects.

The Board of Clark County Commissioners approved a federal Community Development Block Grant allocation of about $268,000 at its meeting on Sept. 16. The money will be used to demolish a former school building in the City of New Carlisle and pave a roadway in Madison Twp.

About $173,000 in federal grant dollars will be used to demolish the pre-1900 Madison Street school, 600 W. Madison Street in New Carlisle, in order to remove blight from the neighborhood. About $40,000 in federal dollars will be used to pave Hennigan Road in Madison Twp.

“These grants are extremely important to the community,” said Community and Economic Development Director Ethan Harris. “They breathe value and pride into neighborhoods that need road, drainage and beautification improvements.”

A portion of the CDBG money will also be used to educate residents about fair housing rights and responsibilities.

For more information, call the Community and Economic Development Office at 937-521-2160.
