Federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief & Economic Stimulus (C.A.R.E.S.) Act money recently was awarded in the village of Diggins.
Shelley Bright, city clerk for Diggins, reported that the Diggins Baptist Church last week received a grant for $7,500 as part of the county's $4.6-million C.A.R.E.S. Act funding.
Bright submitted the church's application to county officials.
"I'm just so happy for them," she said.
Bright added that she just submitted another application for C.A.R.E.S. Act funding from Diggins.
"I'm optimistic that it also will be approved pretty soon," she concluded.
