Grant funds through the Alabama Historical Commission (AHC) are on their way to assist a local historical project.
State Rep. Tracy Estes said he has received news from the AHC that two of three grants he has assisted within his district have been approved for funding.
This includes a $15,000 grant to the City of Winfield to replace the roof on the former Christian Center of Concern building and another $15,000 grant to reroof an old school in Double Springs.
The Winfield lawmaker said a grant application for the City of Guin was denied as it did not meet the grant program’s criteria. Estes said the monies would have been used on the old Frye Warehouse in Guin and was one part of what he said is a “massive” downtown project in the works in the city.
