A State grant has finally been received at the AmVets Post 14 in Clinton after a long wait. With the money that has been reappropriated from taxpayers the grant which began nearly 10 years ago will give $100,000 to the organization. State Rep. Bill Mitchell says the grant is well deserved.
Marc Rogers is the Commander of the AmVets Post 14 as he explains the group never knew if the State would come through on their end to supply the grant.
Now with the grant money, the local AmVets organization will look to expand their building space along with several other areas.
Rep. Mitchell also added that new projects shouldn't be funded before other organizations who have been waiting for that same funding.
The AmVets Post 14 is located at 302 N. Monroe.
