LITTLE ROCK — Arkansas has awarded nearly $1.4 million in grants for structural improvements in eight communities.

The Arkansas Economic Development Commission announced the grants Thursday. The funding is provided to areas where more than half of the population has low to moderate incomes.

The six cities awarded grants are Beedeville, Brinkley, Evening Shade, Pocahontas, Tuckerman and Wilmot. Saline and White counties also received grants. The funding ranges from about $90,000 to $216,000.

The grants will cover street and drainage repairs as well as improvements to a food pantry and community shelter.
