December 8th, 2012 in News

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Kansas City-based group that works with migrant farmworkers is receiving a $23,110 grant from the Environmental Protection Agency.

The agency announced this week that the Migrant Farmworkers Project was among 50 recipients of grants totaling $1.2 million.

One goal of the project is to improve the waste disposal practices of the migrant and seasonal farmworker community in Lafayette County. Another is to expand an existing aluminum recycling project.

Classes and other efforts will be made to teach the community about the problems caused by pollution.
