Cheyenne, WY (AP) - The State Loan and Investment Board is about to consider 19 state grants for communities around Wyoming.
The Wyoming Business Council board has recommended approving the almost $14 million in grants last month. Now the grants are scheduled to go before the State Loan and Investment Board for a vote Thursday.
The proposed grants include $3 million for the town of Alpine to construct a 20,000-square-foot building to expand a brewing company.
Albany County seeks a $1 million grant to build an inpatient hospice facility. Afton requests $3 million for public infrastructure improvements, while Torrington seeks $1.9 million for electrical infrastructure work in a business park.
The State Loan and Investment Board is made up of Governor Matt Mead and the other four statewide elected officials.
