The Department of Employment and Economic Development awarded the cities of Hackensack and Walker with a $592,250 Small Cities Development Program grant April 14. The grant will be used to rehabilitate eight owner-occupied houses, three rental housing units and 13 commercial buildings in Hackensack and Walker.

The two cities sought specialized assistance from the Cass County Economic Development Corporation for the preparation of a competitive grant application.

A community meeting will be planned for June. More information will be available at that time.
