State Rep. Kelly Keisling has announced grants to senior centers in House District 38.

According to the senior centers’ applications, the grant funds will pay for operating, administrative, programmatic, and preventive maintenance costs. The funds will also allow many senior centers to accomplish capital projects for the upkeep and operations of their facilities and equipment.
