Funding Secured for Playground in Ainsworth

The Iowa Economic Development Authority recently awarded a Community Development Block Grant-CV (CDBG-CV) to the City of Ainsworth to build a new playground at the city's municipal building. ECICOG wrote the grant application and will serve as administrator. The grant, which was funded through the CARES Act, will fund playground equipment that enables greater social distancing and is rated for children under five years of age. While this particular grant is no longer available, ECICOG is expecting new CDBG grant opportunities to be announced this fall.
