Monroe County leaders are urging businesses an organizations to apply for grants through the county.

The Monroe County Commissioners received a block grant of 15 million dollars, and they are almost ready to start granting the money to eligible groups. The application has been open for about a week, but they haven't seen the turnout they were expecting.

"We've only had 14 so far that have filled out all the paperwork, and provided the necessary documents for completion of the grant," John Moyer, Vice Chairman of the Monroe County Commissioners, said.

The application is available on the commissioners website, and it is due on August 3rd.
