WAPAKONETA — The Wapakoneta Area Community Foundation will award a $10,000 matching grant to the Downtown Wapakoneta Partnership during a public ceremony at 4 p.m. Friday at the Wapakoneta Eagles aerie, 25 E. Auglaize St.
The grant funds will be used for the DWP’s Downtown Facade Improvement Fund.
“This the first time the foundation has awarded a matching grant,” explained Greg Myers, executive director of the community foundation. “It is also one of the largest single grants we have made. We are pleased to support the good work the DWP has done in redeveloping our historic downtown.”
