Governor Chet Culver has announced $13 million in another round of I-JOB Grants that fund projects in 24 Main Street Iowa Communities. Bodywrx Fitness is located at 100 South Iowa Avenue on the Washington Square and has received $250,000.  Renovations have already began on the building’s upstairs floor to make new apartments, a project Bodywrx owner Teri Hartzler says wouldn’t have happened without the quarter of a million I-JOBS Grant.  The project must follow green building guidelines and be finished within the next 18 months to remain eligible for I-JOBS Funding.
