Greenup and Boyd counties receive a $1.5 million grant

FRANKFORT, Ky. — Government officials announced a $1.5 million Abandoned Mine Lands (AML) Pilot program grant for site work linked to the construction of a 65,000-square-foot building project in the EastPark Industrial Park in Greenup and Boyd counties.

When completed, this project will allow Northeast Kentucky Industrial Development Authority Inc. (EastPark) to compete for tenants that could bring new jobs to the region, drawing workers from Boyd, Greenup, Carter, Elliott, and Lawrence counties.

The EastPark site is one of 16 Build-Ready certified sites available statewide. Team Kentucky knows that speed to market is critical for many industries. Kentucky’s Build-Ready program allows companies looking to expedite their location process to select Kentucky and begin construction immediately.
