East Texas Receives Anti Drug Grants

It's better preparing Texas in the fight against illegal drugs. That's what Governor Rick Perry had to say about the new $7 million grants awarded to 31 narcotics and law enforcement programs.

Among those receiving the anti drug grants are Anderson county. They're getting more than $200,000. The City of Athens grant totals more than $25,000. Cass County will receive $245,000 and Henderson County more than $25,000.

Each year the Criminal Justice Division awards more than 130 million dollars in grants to help Texas at the forefront in the fight against crime.
