Governor Jennifer Granholm and other state leaders announced this year's cool city grant projects Thursday in Lansing's Old Town. Old town is one of two areas in Lansing that will benefit from Cool City Grants. The other will be used to revitalize the city's Stadium District.
In total Lansing will receive about $300,000 in grants.
Lansing isn't the only cool Mid-Michigan City. Projects in Howell, Ionia, and Adrian are also getting grants.
Cool City Organizers say the program will help create more than 400 jobs across the state.
