School gets disaster recovery grant
Published: October 23,2009
LONG BEACH — Gov. Haley Barbour and the Mississippi Development Authority Disaster Recovery Division (MDA/DRD) have announced a $1.5-million grant for completion of Long Beach’s Harper McCaughan Elementary School.
Barbour said, “The goals of Mississippi’s recovery remain three fold: providing housing; incenting jobs; and, rebuilding and improving our public facilities and infrastructure. Certainly completion of McCaughan Elementary School is a major step toward rebuilding a vital public facility that’ll help hasten recovery in Long Beach.”
Specifically, the funding will be sourced from MDA/DRD’s $500-million Community Revitalization Program, one of 17 recovery programs, which constitute the $5.4 billion package.
