The Missouri Department of Economic Development has awarded the Mission Possible Center in Grant City Neighborhood Assistance Program tax credits to help fund the construction of a new building in downtown Grant City.
With the tax credits awarded the organization is now looking for donors to help fund that work.
The tax credits will return 70-percent of a donor’s donation in the form of a tax credit. These credits will make up 80-percent of the needed funding to constrt5uct the new building. The other 20-percent will come from other fundraising efforts and donations.
All of the needed funds must be raised before the group can break ground on the new facility. That ground-breaking has tentatively been set for mid-to-late next year.
The Mission Possible Center was started in 2004 to help serve the food insecure in the area. they have been housed in the Grant City Masonic lodge since their inception.
Donors may contribute cash, materials, supplies or equipment, professional services and labor. The Missouri state tax credits will be administered by the Northwest Regional Council of Governments through the course of the building project.
