No answers for grant funds

In a recent Daily Press story (“Council approves grant requests,” Daily Press, page B1, May 2), it was stated that eight nonprofit groups will take a portion of the $86,250 that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development grant designated for public service projects in Apple Valley.
