Several Lewis County Community Organizations to Receive State Grants

Posted: Updated:

Several community organizations in Lewis County will be receiving grants from the state.

The Lewis County Commission approved and signed seven grants totaling more than $11,000.

Commissioners said the grants will make a huge difference to the organizations they support.

"It doesn't sound like it's a lot of money, but to some of these organizations, that's part of their budget for the entire year, so it's a huge, huge amount of money and it's a huge benefit to their organizations to keep them afloat," said Pat Boyle, of the Lewis County Commission.

The commission also heard from members of Lewis County Concerned Citizens about a proposed moratorium on new Marcellus Shale drilling.
