BAY MINETTE, Ala. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions says a nearly
$4.3 million federal grant for the Association for Retarded
Citizens of Baldwin County will build a hurricane shelter that will
hold some 370 special-needs storm evacuees.
When no storm threatens, the building will serve as an education
center for the county's physically and mentally disabled residents.
Sessions, a Mobile Republican, says the grant came through the
Federal Emergency Management Agency. The Baldwin County nonprofit
is seeking a USDA Rural Development loan to help fund the remaining
costs of the project.
The proposal is for a 15,000 square foot hurricane shelter.
