02-14-20-Two Counties Get State Grants

LEAD: Bayfield and Ashland Counties are receiving state grants for housing studies.

VERBATIM: Each county is awarded $50,000 Community Development Block Grants from the Wisconsin Department of Administration which will go toward creating surveys to gather data about area housing needs. The results will then be used by officials to create plans for developers to use going forward. The survey is expected to be posted in April and will conclude at the end of the year.
