Bladenboro Health Booster

Organization:
Bladen's Bloomin' Agri-Industrial, Inc.
Amount:
$200,000.00
Program Area:
Open Grants Program
County of Applicant:
Bladen
Description:

This grant provides funding to Bladen’s Bloomin’ Agri-Industrial (BBAI) to help renovate an 8,000 square foot former Dollar General building in downtown Bladenboro into a multi-tenant healthcare services facility. Flooding from Hurricane Matthew resulted in the loss of the town’s primary care facility and its only eye doctor. A local pharmacy was also displaced and is temporarily located in a former bank building that is too small to meet its needs. The renovated structure would potentially house the pharmacy, saving ten jobs, and a new optometry practice that would create five new jobs, with space remaining for a third tenant.
