Governor announces $240,000 grant for work on Neal Building
Article from The Nicholas Countian & The Carlisle Mercury

Neal Building
Governor Ernie Fletcher announced last week the approval of a $240,000 grant for the city of Carlisle.

The renovation of the 1883 Neal Building will provide Carlisle with a welcome center, museum, and a performing arts center. The museum will feature the lifestyles and transportation modes from Carlisle’s past.

The project is funded through the federal government’s Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century, or TEA-21 program. Kentucky’s share of federal funds is administered by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.

TEA-21 funds are used for a variety of transportation-related projects, including pedestrian and bicycle use facilities, scenic and environmental improvement projects, preservation of abandoned railway corridors, and historic preservation projects.
