Cairo-  A grant from the federal government will help one Grady County community draw in more business. 

The Grady County Joint Development Authority received a check for $99,999 to continue to rehabilitate and improve the Robbenberry Facility. The funds will be used for roof and insulation repairs, overhead doors, the construction of office space, and restrooms.

"They've already brought two businesses and they're trying to bring another one and from talking with the development authority they're working with several business right now to move them into that space," said Ricky Sweat, Area Director USDA Rural Development. 

In the past five years, the Grady County Joint Development Authority has created over 400 jobs in the community by expanding existing industry.
