The Green River Area Development District welcomed Gov. Andy Beshear and Delta Regional Authority Federal Co-Chair Dr. Corey Wiggins to the region June 20. Beshear and Wiggins visited the Green River Wellness Mission in Henderson, announcing $2.9 million in funding for four projects. 


  • The City of Sturgis will use $2,024,000 to rehabilitate its wastewater treatment plant. 

  • Henderson Community College will use $450,000 to support its MAINTech program. This advanced industrial maintenance training program is working to address the need for skilled industrial workers in Western Kentucky.
