Shelby: Applications Available for Delta Regional Authority Grants

U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala) today announced that the grant process for the Delta Regional Authority’s (DRA) 2009 federal grant program has begun.  Those wishing to apply for DRA grants can find a pre-application package and timeline by going to DRA’s website at www.dra.gov.

“Many communities throughout Alabama have benefitted from the DRA grants,” said Shelby.  “These grants are essential to improving and developing infrastructure that will facilitate economic development in Alabama.  I urge eligible communities in our state to complete the DRA pre-application process before the deadline of March 6, 2009.”

The DRA serves 252 counties and parishes in parts of Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri and Tennessee.
