The I-Jobs program that was recently signed into law by Governor Chet Culver is all ready starting to hand out money.
According to WHO-TV the first seven applications have been approved. All of them appear to be in the Cedar Rapids area, which was hit very hard by the 2008 flooding.
The projects would receive $45 million in I-JOBS funding. Some of the money will be pumped into Cedar Rapids’ public library, Paramount Theater, Public Works Building as well as the National Czech and Slovak Museum.
