~ DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - Business districts in 14 Iowa cities will get state money to make improvements through the Main Street Iowa Challenge Grant program.
     Economic development officials say they have approved $951,000 in grants for building facade improvements, restoration projects, and stabilization of deteriorating buildings.
     Projects in Burlington, Cedar Falls, Des Moines, Dunlap, Elkader, Marion, State Center and Woodbine will each receive $75,000.
     Multiple properties in Charles City get $66,000.
     Dubuque and Osceola have projects which have received $65,000 and a building in Belle Plaine gets $60,000.
     The Bride's Corner in Waterloo gets $50,000 through the program and a building in Manning will be renovated with $45,000.
     The Challenge Grant program is funded through an appropriation from the Iowa Legislature.
     Each project must provide matching funds and most also include private investment.
