USA, Grants to improve access to 2 Industrial Parks

Grants from the Economic Development Administration (EDA) were delivered to create additional jobs and private investment in two regions of the USA.
U.S. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke announced a $2m grant to the cities of Centralia and Wamac, Ill., to make roadway updates to improve access to Centralia Industrial Park #1 and a $700,000 grant to Greater Jobs, Inc., and the city of Albert Lea, Minn., to build an access road to serve the I35-I90 industrial park.
The projects were made possible because of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), signed into law by President Obama on February 17, 2009 in order to provide immediate relief for American families and to create jobs, improve infrastructure and strengthen local economies.
