The Washington County Riverboat Foundation is allocating over $226,000 for the second quarter of this year through its municipal grant program. WCRF distributes a quarter of its revenues directly to cities in Washington County, based on population. This quarter the city of Washington is getting over $120,000.

City Accountant Joe Myers says the city intends to look at exactly how the funds will be used.  Since the WCRF’s inception, they have distributed over three point eight million dollars to the nine cities of Washington County.
