Trigg County Hospital’s planned expansion project, which it announced recently, could be funded in part by a Community Development Block Grant of up to $500,000.

When the Trigg County Fiscal Court met Monday evening, the magistrates voted 6 – 0 to apply for the CDBG on behalf of the hospital. Magistrate Barry Littlejohn was absent. Trigg County Judge Executive Stan Humphries said the county would be the “pass-through agent” if the application was approved.

“The last one … was at the Senior Citizens Center, and that has been completed down to zero,” said Humphries. “It’s all taken care of, so that allows us to apply for another CDBG.” That CDBG was also for $500,000.

Alisa Coleman, CEO (Chief Executive Officer) of Trigg County Hospital, said the CDBG application will be turned in by Tuesday, Sept. 4, and that they’ll know if it’s been approved by January. If it is approved, they’ll start breaking ground “soon after the first of the year.”

The specific expansion project that would be funded is the surgical wing expansion, said Coleman, who added that they’ve already done some preliminary work for it, including soil boring.
