BRITE Energy Innovators awarded $25,000 GM on Main Street Grant
Main Street America and General Motors have announced on Friday that Warren-based non-profit, BRITE Energy Innovators will be receiving a $25,000 place-making grant courtesy of the General Motors on Main Street grant series.
BRITE was among six non-profits awarded $25,000, with BRITE receiving its award for its Dave Grohl Alley Improvement Project, which is set to be implemented over the summer and fall.
The non-profit plans to install a "moveable kinetic dance floor" that will generate renewable energy to power technology demonstrations in Dave Grohl Alley, as well as BRITE's offices.
"We're truly excited to continue to improve one of the top tourist destinations in our region and build upon the partnership between stakeholders of the Alley and the City of Warren," said BRITE Chief of Staff, Sara Daugherty.
This funding builds upon previous investment from the Ohio Arts Council and local partners.
