After receiving extra funding from the federal government, the Lodi City Council awarded grant money for the first time on Wednesday to a local community college’s small business development program, which already has a track record in Lodi.
The city got $52,100 more than it was expecting from the federal Community Development Block Grant program. The extra money, coupled with $60,286 of grant money for next year left city officials with more than $100,000 to spend on community development projects.
