KEARNEY — The Kearney City Council will discuss approving the submission of a grant application by the World Theatre Foundation to the Department of Economic Development for $200,000.
The Tourism Development program is a funding category within the Community Development Block Grant program funded by the DED. The program allows the DED to award funds to tourism attractions.
The city will not contribute any money toward the project, but will act as the grantee for the funds. The World Theatre Foundation will be responsible for all matching funds.
The money will be used as part of the estimated $479,650 cost of renovating and re-opening the historic theater.
