CCCC receives grant for ag facility
A new agriculture facility is closer to a reality after the Cloud County Community Foundation received a $5,000 grant from the Community Foundation for Cloud County.
The grant will be used to support the construction of an agriculture facility on the Concordia campus.
The facility will help Cloud County meet the needs of its growing enrollment in the agriculture program by providing a space for the precision ag equipment and livestock. It will also allow for community and business outreach opportunities.
The Cloud County Foundation has already secured $235,000 in additional funds to be used for the new building.
Director Heather Gennette said the Foundation is continuing to pursue additional grant opportunities, partnerships and fundraising to raise the $350,000 needed for the project.
