St. Paul neighborhood to receive federal grant

by Shannon Lee
A St. Paul neighborhood was announced Tuesday as one of 21 cities nationwide to receive a $500,000 federal grant.
The money will help provide communities in the Frogtown and Summit-University areas with social, educational and medical services, reported the Star Tribune.
Several local politicians and leaders expressed enthusiasm for the grant.
"This grant is an investment in young people who often face barriers that can derail their efforts to get a quality education," Sen. Al Franken told Kare 11.
St. Paul was the only Minnesota city chosen out of 340 groups that applied, noted the Star Tribune.
