More federal stimulus dollars are making their way into the hands of local organizations.
The Grand Junction City Council approved more than $400,000 worth of grants to local groups, paid for by the recovery act.
A community learning center for a low income housing development, a van to transport the homeless and making a development handicap accessible are some of the things that money will pay for.
Grants were awarded to housing resources of Western Colorado, Homeward Bound, St. Mary’s Senior Companion Program and the Grand Junction Housing Authority.
City officials say more than a dozen organizations turned in applications for those dollars.
