LANGSTON, Okla. (AP) — Langston University has received an $800,000 federal grant that it plans to use to help spur economic development in the Logan County town in which the school is located. Langston is one of 10 universities to receive a Historically Black College and University Grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. University officials say the award will be used to build on projects in the town of Langston, including the construction of a farmer’s market, more construction work on a softball field and providing capacity-building support for the town’s Business Resource and Incubator Center. The university used an earlier $800,000 grant to start work on the softball field and expand the capacity of the business resource center. Copyright 2010 The Associated Press.
