CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The State Loan and Investment Board is about to consider 19 state grants for communities around Wyoming.

The Wyoming Business Council board has recommended approving the more than $16 million in grants. The State Loan and Investment Board has scheduled a vote Thursday.

The proposed grants include $3 million for the town of Alpine to construct a 20,000 square-foot building to expand a brewing company.

Albany County seeks a $1 million grant to build an inpatient hospice facility. Afton requests $3 million for public infrastructure improvements, while Torrington seeks $1.9 million for electrical infrastructure work in a business park.

The State Loan and Investment Board is made up of Gov. Matt Mead and the other four statewide elected officials.
