(DECATUR) Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney (D-GA) is proud to announce two appropriations for the 4th Congressional District of Georgia. The Clarkston Community Center, Inc., located in Clarkston, GA and the DeKalb Multipurpose Center of DeKalb County, GA were both awarded $100,000 for renovations and development, respectively. These appropriations were included in the Department of Veterans Affairs, Housing and Urban Development and Independent Agencies Appropriations Act, H.R. 2620, which passed the House of Representatives on November 8, 2001.

"These appropriations are very important to the people the 4th District. Both community centers will provide an array of services, from senior citizen assistance and education, to recreation and performing arts. There has been a lack of such facilities in DeKalb County, and I am proud to assist the volunteers of Clarkston Community Center, Inc., a non-profit community organization and the government of DeKalb County to improve and develop such centers," Congresswoman McKinney stated.

Mr. Dave Hilton, President of Clarkston Community Center, Inc. stated that "this will be a big help for our community center project." He continued, "Thanks so much to Congresswoman McKinney."

"As this center continues to improve, the residents of Clarkston - people of many different cultures - will have a beautiful and effective location to interact, share experiences and beliefs, and to cooperatively build their community for the future," Congresswoman McKinney concluded.
