Two Special Projects Grants Awarded By DRA

In its’ first year of existence the Dubuque Racing Association Special Projects Grant Committee has selected two local organizations for funding. During its’ monthly meeting yesterday the DRA board of directors voted to accept a recommendation from the executive committee to fund the Dream Center and the Dubuque Museum of Art to the tune of $150,000 each for their projects. Executive Committee chair Rick Dickinson says the money funded to the Dream Center will be used to make the building ADA compliant. The Museum of Art funding will be used for a major expansion in the downtown area. The process for selecting the special grant recipients started back in August. In all the committee sifted through 36 applications and narrowed it down to four. The 36 applications amounted to more than 7 million dollars in funding request.
