Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Governor's Office of Appalachia is utilizing their sources to fund economical projects in the Mahoning Valley.

The Office works to improve communities in the Appalachian region of Ohio with community development projects, road improvement, job creation and water and sewer projects.

"Partnering with local communities and the Local Development Districts, the Governor's Office of Appalachia is working to improve the quality of life throughout the Appalachian region," said Jason Wilson, director of the Governor's Office of Appalachia, in a press release.

CASTLO Community Improvement Corporation, Inc. in the Mahoning Valley will receive a $100,000 grant from the State Appalachian Development Program to install 6,000 linear feet of track and rail bridge.

The money will also go toward the installation of 200 linear feet of new rail siding at CASTLO's industrial park.

Industrial Piping Specialist, Inc. and Marblehead Services Company will retain seven and create 30 jobs at the site.

The Youngstown Business Incubator will also receive a grant for $50,000 from the program to renovate the first floor of the building. This is expected to accommodate the 22 participating businesses, attract new companies to the site and enhance telecommunication.

The City of Canfield will receive the largest grant of $150,000 to install 300 linear feet of iron pipe water transmission line along state Route 11.

This project will provide water to 126 businesses, 3,400 residential properties, five schools, nine local government offices and the county fairgrounds.
