Community Grant

The Xenia Downtown Revitalization Committee has a wonderful opportunity to apply for a $2,500 grant, which we hope to use to purchase Xenia-branded merchandise that can be sold at First Fridays and through local businesses.  This would help us in our efforts to promote awareness of the XDRC and market downtown as a great place to live, work and visit, and would also allow us to raise funds for larger projects such as building renovations.

But there's a catch -- it's a matching grant.  Well there's no better time than the present!  Click here to download a membership form.  If we can raise $2,500 before the end of June, we can apply for the full grant amount.  I hope you will be a part of making it happen.
 
Sincerely, John Finlay, XDRC Chair

Central State University News

The Ohio House of Representatives approved Senate Concurrent Resolution 30, a resolution sponsored by State Senator Chris Widener (R- Springfield) and Senate Minority Leader Eric Kearney (D- Cincinnati) that would designate Central State University as Ohio's second Land Grant Institution under the Morrill Act of 1890.

 Following unanimous approval by the Ohio Senate and the House Education Committee, the Ohio House of Representatives passed Senate Concurrent Resolution 30 by a vote of 84-1.  With this stage complete, attention now turns to Congress where additional legislative action is needed to allow Central State to apply for federal funds only available to 1890 land grant schools.
