Columbia receives downtown grant from GM


The city of Columbia is one of four Main Street programs and five cities to receive $50,000 from the GM on Main Street Grant Program. The program provides grants for placemaking initiatives to nonprofits and municipalities located near GM facilities. The funds will go to Columbia’s Infrastructure and Greenspace Improvement project, which will create a safer, more pedestrian-friendly downtown district through infrastructure and greenspace improvements. Improvements will include curb extensions, more greenspaces, and an informational kiosk.
