Published April 26th, 2004 - 02:00 GMT

The US-led occupying authorities in Iraq have approved a $1.7 million grant for projects in the Salad Al-Din province.  


While meeting in Tikrit with the Salad Al-Din province’s head engineer and a district engineer, Governorate Coordinator Mark R. Kennon also informed the engineers of an extra grant of four million dollars approved by US administrator of the occupying Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) Paul L. Bremer.  


Most of the money the CPA uses to help develop Iraq comes from the Local Governance fund and Rapid Regional Response fund. All together the CPA has given over $10 million dollars for projects in the province, and has five million dollars more to devote to helping rebuild Iraq before June 30th.  


The engineers provide the CPA with prioritized lists of projects complete with assessments every week. These projects range from refurbishing hospitals complete with ambulances to equipping police officers. — (
