Funds Awarded to Three Projects in the in the Pennyrile Region

​The Delta Regional Authority and Governor Matt Bevin, together with their federal and local-based partners, awarded funds to three projects in the Pennyrile Area Development District.  The City of Greenville received funding for wastewater infrastructure improvements in the amount of $400,000.  This project will provide upgrades to the Paradise Lift Station in Greenville needed to provide adequate wastewater treatment services for local businesses and residents. 

The Trigg County Hospital was awarded $155,550 to construct a new hallway with four private patient rooms to be utilized as swing-bed rooms.  A swing-bed program allows patients to recover in a hospital setting, versus a nursing home, or returning home too soon to home care. 

Madisonville Community College will receive funding in the amount of $180,629 to create a lineman training program.  The training program will allow utilities companies to recruit from the regional labor force, particularly targeting displaced coal miners and high school graduates who do not intend to pursue post-secondary credentials. 
Congratulations to each of these entities.  The Pennyrile Area Development District is honored to assist in the pursuit of such worthy projects.  For more information on Delta Regional Authority funding programs, please contact Amy Frogue, Ashley Johnson or Angie Crawford at the PADD office.
