Tennessee has assigned $17 million in taxpayer funds to communities throughout the state to build out infrastructure on vacant sites being prepared for future businesses.

The largest grant is more than $4.5 million to Crossville for speculative building construction at Interchange Business Park.

Another grant of $4.5 million was assigned to Lawrence County to buy land and install water, sewer, natural gas and electrical infrastructure at the Lawrenceburg Industrial Park.

The grants are part of the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development’s Site Development Grant program.

The grants also include a $1.7 million grant to Columbia for electrical infrastructure at the Columbia Tennessee Rail Site and $1 million to Pulaski and Giles County for property grading at the Dan Speer Industrial Park South.
