FRANKFORT, Ky. (October 22, 2018) – The Department for Local Government (DLG) has announced an Area Development Fund (ADF) grant of $2,852.27 to the City of Augusta.

The grant will allow the city to improve a boat dock that is central to tourism and recreation in Augusta.

“The Ohio River plays such a large role in the City of Augusta’s history and culture,” DLG Commissioner Sandra K. Dunahoo said. “I’m pleased that these ADF funds will allow families to safely enjoy this boat dock and the river for years to come.”

“I’m grateful to see these funds invested in the maintenance and upkeep of the city’s boat dock,” Sen. Wil Schroder said. “I’d like to thank Commissioner Dunahoo and her staff for their assistance.”

“This is a seemingly small investment that stands to improve quality of life for Augusta residents and visitors,” Rep. John Sims said. “I look forward to seeing the end result of these improvements.”

The ADF Grant program was established by the 1976 Kentucky General Assembly to fund projects that contribute to community or industrial development. The funds are administered by DLG, an arm of the Office of the Governor dedicated to supporting local officials and communities. For more information, visit dlg.ky.gov.
