Grants can come in all shapes and sizes, and they are available for many different needs. Grants are available to nonprofit organizations, individuals, cities, states, and more. Many people, from all over the country and the world, are awarded grants daily. A Washington city, Port Angeles, recently received a grant to rebuild a busy portion of their city. The plan in place is to make safety improvements by rebuilding Lincoln Street from First to Eighth streets.
Port Angeles was awarded a $1.28 million grant from the state Department of Transportation to make these improvements for the betterment of their city for their citizens. While this is an exciting time, the construction is not set to take place until 2021. Rob Ollikainen noted the comments of the city’s Public Works and Utilities Director, “Lincoln Street will receive new and improved ADA curb ramps, curb extensions, bicycle lanes and pedestrian advisory flashers integrated within modified bus zone, parking and access features, Hunter said” (para. 8). The city of Port Angeles is excited to make these improvements and create a better, more welcoming space for their residents and visitors.
