(LAGRANGE) – After three unsuccessful attempts to obtain bids for a renovation project last year, the LaGrange County Council on Aging will try again.

The agency is applying for a block grant of $500,000 from the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs. The grant funds come from federal Housing and Urban Development monies.

The Council on Aging had to withdraw from a $400,000 grant last year after all the bids exceeded the grant funding.

Matt Brinkman of Region 3A Development describes the scope of the project. ...... {LISTEN}.
The local match for the grant is $159,500.

Brinkman said they will know in June if they receive the funding and will work even harder to get better bids this time around.
