Grants approved for Tabor projects
Representative Brenden Jones recently announced economic development funding for Tabor City from the North Carolina Rural Infrastructure Authority.
The first is a $250,000 grant to the town to assist with the construction of 1,200 linear feet of 12-inch water line. DMA Holdings, a warehouse distributor for the North American automotive parts after market, will benefit from the upgrade, creating 13 new jobs. The company will invest $250,000 in the project. The second is a $97,350 grant that will support the renovation of a 100,000 sq. ft. building located in Tabor City and constructed in 1974 for DMA.
“This is fantastic news for our district to be provided economic development funding,” said Jones. “These funds will be put to use to assist in renovation and construction and create 13 new jobs as a result.”
