City gets $250K through response program

The City of Huntington has been awarded $250,000 through the COVID-19 Response Program.

Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch and the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs announced the award on April 30. In all, 49 rural communities received a total of $8.8 million in federal grant funding through the program.

Huntington’s award will fund the city’s existing revolving loan fund framework in order to quickly deploy critical financial resources to small businesses for operations and remote-work capabilities.
