Grant Money For The Coast

Governor Ronnie Musgrove has announced new economic development marketing match grants for Claiborne, Harrison and Washington counties. The grants were made by the Mississippi Development Authority.

A grant for more than 15-thousand dollars was made to the Harrison County Development Commission. The funds will be used to produce an advertising campaign to showcase the Mississippi Gulf Coast as a vacation destination for retirees.  The money will also be used to try and convince retired folks to make the Mississippi coast their permanent home.
