CITY HAS YET TO FILE STELLAR GRANT DOCUMENTATION THAT WAS DUE LAST DECEMBER

(Richmond, IN)--Richmond’s Stellar Grant funding is not in jeopardy, despite the fact that the city has missed an application deadline by more than five months.  That’s according to a representative of the Indiana Lieutenant Governor’s Office on Thursday.  Richmond was named a Stellar community four years ago and was originally in line to get nearly $20 million for upgrades – mainly in the Uptown area.  As a part of that process, an application and accompanying documentation was due last December.  According to the Lieutenant Governor’s Office, that deadline came and went with no word from the city of Richmond.  In April, the Office of Community and Rural Affairs, which oversees the Stellar grant program began questioning the delay in discussion with the Lieutenant Governor's Office.  According to that office, the city still has not filed the documentation that was due last December.  A state official said Thursday that grant funding will be held until the Office of Community and Rural Affairs receives the necessary documentation.  The issue will likely come up at Monday night’s council meeting.
