Larchwood, Iowa — Fifty-one projects from around the tri-state area have won grants of up to $3000 from the Lyon County Riverboat Foundation in their annual mini-grant giveaway.

The Lyon County Riverboat Foundation says that during the 2023 mini-grant cycle, 97 applicants applied for grants totaling nearly $280,000.
