Cole Announces Grant for Downtown Lawton Development

Washington_U.S. Congressman Tom Cole (OK-4) announced the award of $2 million dollars to the city of Lawton to help redevelop downtown city business areas. 

"This funding will help transform downtown Lawton," Congressman Cole said.  "It will be used to create a more beautiful area for business owners and local residents, giving them even more to be proud of.  I'm pleased that there were so many individuals who worked hard to secure this grant money. Their efforts have really paid off."     

The $2 million dollar grant, linked with other matching funds from a Brownfield Economic Development Initiative grant (BEDI), will give the city over $3 million dollars of assistance.  This HUD grant, along with the BEDI funds, will be used to implement a downtown redevelopment plan that will redesign 2nd street and connect downtown to I-44.  It will also be used to support commercial development and implement improvements in the surrounding neighborhoods.

These funds are provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as a part of the Community Development Block Grant program.  These HUD grants are provided to local governments seeking public investment tools for revitalization projects.  

From the office of Congressman Tom Cole
