Washington County Redevelopment Authority plans to hold three workshops explaining how to apply for funds made available from the local share of casino gambling at The Meadows Racetrack & Casino.

The program is open to Washington County and local governments, municipal authorities and nonprofit agencies.

The workshops are designed for local officials and those who will be preparing and submitting applications.

Here are the locations and times:

  • 10 a.m. Aug. 20, in council chambers at the Donora Borough Building, 603 Meldon Ave.
  • 2 p.m. Aug. 21, at Western Area Career and Technology Center, 688 Western Ave., Canonsburg.
  • 5:30 p.m. Aug. 21, in the public meeting room of the Courthouse Square office building, 100 W. Beau St., Washington.

The 2019 application and related information will also be posted on the redevelopment authority’s website, www.racw.net, under “economic development.”

Eligible projects include job training, public interest, community improvement and economic development.

The application deadline is 5 p.m. Oct. 3.
