Grant of $1.5 Million goes to Aleut for Fishing Industry

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Federal officials say a $1.5 million grant is being awarded to the Aleut community on Alaska's Saint Paul Island for its commercial fishing industry.

    The money for the village of Saint Paul will be going to an effort to build a vessel repair and marine supply store facility, as said in a news released from U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross. The returns of this endeavor are expected to create $22.6 million in private investment and 73 new jobs.
