Additional grant money available, says town officials


Town officials are ready to apply for another series of federal American Rescue Plan Act grants.

The next round occurs in either September or October.

McGill & Associates will write the grant.

Jammie Royall, town manager, is not sure of the amount, but did say “it will be for as much as we can get.”

“We have a lot of things going on right now, and these federal assistance and emergency monies fit right into our needs,” Royall said.

The funds will go toward the town’s infrastructure and could be used for street improvements.

More than a month ago, town officials submitted an application requesting $15 million to help repair Mount Olive’s aging wastewater treatment plant. 

Mount Olive remains under a state-mandated moratorium that prohibits the growth of residential and commercial property inside the town limits.
