NASHVILLE (AP) — Gov. Bill Haslam has announced more than $28 million in community development grants to help improve infrastructure, health and safety projects and downtown improvements.

Seventy cities and counties around the state received the block grants under Wednesday's announcement.

Haslam said the improvements help communities attract investment and jobs.

The state grants ranged from $88,000 to $525,000, with local governments matching some of that total.

The largest combined projects are a $1 million waterline extension in Bradley County, $950,000 in water system improvements in Townsend and another $825,000 waterline extension in Sumner County.

Sewer system improvements total $750,000 in Oliver Springs and nearly $666,000 in Lenoir City.

Other grants are funding fire protection, housing rehabilitation, ambulance services and drainage improvements.
