The Benson Building project is among 13 other recipients in the state.
Tina Hoffman of the Iowa Economic Development Authority says the grants were targeted toward downtown or main street type projects.
The Hansen Building Project at Belle Plaine also received grant money to the tune of 60-thousand dollars from the state.
Belle Plaine was a first time recipient.
This is the seventh such grant that State Center has received.
