The Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA) awarded the City of Greencastle with a $400,000 grant through the Public Facilities Program (PFP) to rehabilitate the city’s fire station. Originally constructed in 1979, the city believes the building has pressing needs for exterior structural improvements. The project will also include the completion of interior improvements such as the construction of additional office space as well as the renovation of the bunk room and kitchen. The goals of PFP are to improve the quality of places in communities across the state as well as to generate jobs and spur economic revitalization. Eligible PFP projects range from community facilities such as libraries, museums, community centers, and performance spaces to historic preservation efforts. In total, OCRA awarded $4.7 million in grant funding through PFP to 14 Hoosier communities this year.
