“At least 30 state grants totaling nearly $13 million have been approved for local governments so business and industry locations can be prepared or can be expanded and create numerous jobs.
And a significant part of that money, $980,000, is going to go to four locations in the Twin Counties.
Specifically, $790,000 in grants are for buildings to be renovated for re-usage and a $190,000 grant is for a business already in the area and with plans to expand a building.
Gov. Roy Cooper made the announcement in a news release.
The list in Cooper’s news release includes three locations the Telegram has previously reported that the Rocky Mount-based Carolinas Gateway Partnership was seeking grants with the authorization of the city government.”
