LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Dale Zorn announced on Wednesday that the city of Adrian will be able to help transform two vacant historic buildings downtown into residential units thanks to a recently approved state grant.
“These funds will help Adrian continue its downtown revitalization efforts, which is great news for local families and the entire area,” said Zorn, R-Ida. “Our downtown areas are the heartbeat of our communities, and I applaud the local leaders for working together with state officials and private developers to make this project a reality. By rehabilitating these historic buildings, we can help attract more economic activity and people to downtown Adrian.”
The Michigan Strategic Fund awarded Adrian $242,790 in Community Development Block Grant funds for a downtown rental rehabilitation project that includes renovating two vacant historic buildings into four new residential apartments, three of which will be reserved for low- to moderate-income households.
The project is expected to generate private investment of $219,053.
