Pulaski County Community Development Commission Executive Director Nathan Origer requested grant match funds as an additional appropriation at this week’s Pulaski County Council meeting.
Origer said the county is the recipient of two grants. The Hometown Collaboration Initiative grant will help small communities, like Pulaski County, to expand jobs based on existing economic assets and improve attractiveness and quality of life.
The county also received a Region 1 Works Council for a Career and Technical Education innovation-curriculum grant in the amount of $82,355. The grant will fund a Pulaski County Repair and Maintenance Technology program at West Central High School.
The matching funds needed for both grants is $12,000. The Pulaski County Council members approved the advertisement of the additional appropriation. Final approval will be made in April.
