WASHINGTON, D.C. (U.S. EPA) – Whitewright, a city just south of Sherman in Grayson County, is one of 20 U.S. cities selected to receive a Brownfields Area-Wide Planning (AWP) grant. It is the only Texas city on the list.
According to a press release issued yesterday, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is awarding up to $200,000 per recipient. Whitewright's grant is intended to help the city "expand business district for light industrial and commercial use," the press release said.
This marks the third round of grants awarded under the Brownfields AWP program.
