ANADARKO, Okla. (AP) – The Delaware Nation of Oklahoma is being awarded a $950,000 economic development grant.

The U.S. Commerce Department’s Economic Development Administration grant is part of $8 million in grants announced Thursday to support economic development projects in Oklahoma and four other states.

The Anadarko-based Delaware Nation is to use its funding to renovate a former carpet mill and rehabilitate an adjoining rail spur to accommodate the Greentech Technology Center. The new center is intended to support manufacturing businesses.

The project is expected to help create 150 jobs.
