MARYVILLE, Missouri — A grant of $1.4 million is set for the home community of Northwest Missouri State University to improve its main east-west road.

A RAISE Grant (so called as a backronym for Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity) is a U.S. Department of Transportation's long-standing competitive award. It is for communities that want to improve major infrastructure and can't afford to do so with local funds alone.
