The Village of Middle Point is extremely pleased to hear they will be receiving an Ohio Public Works Commission (OPWC) grant for $500,000 for their North Adams Street Reconstruction Project. This grant, combined with $250,000 of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding which is made available to the Van Wert County Commissioners through federal Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funds administered by the state of Ohio, will allow the village a total project cost which exceeds $750,000 and is part of Middle Point’s long-term plan for continued improvements.
This award comes through a collaborative effort of the Van Wert County Commissioners, Access Engineering Solutions of Celina and the village. County grant resources such as CDBG funding is essential in the strategic planning of securing other grants like OPWC. This project is part of the county’s continuing efforts to coordinate grant assistance for the villages, townships and the City of Van Wert.
The improvements in Middle Point should begin in early 2015.
