            Villages, cities and townships in Clinton County are on a list put out by the governor to get money from his Rebuild Illinois program. These grants are for infrastructure improvements like repairs and maintenance.

            The county itself is also on the list and receives $1,067,714.52. It is being paid out to the county in six disbursements. Each is for $266,928.63.

            The intention of the program is also to provide jobs and boost the local economy. The things municipalities or others can choose from to use the money for are improvements to roads and bridges, traffic signal upgrades, new storm sewers, bicycle paths, sidewalk replacement and other long-term needs.
