The community of Holt is getting a helping hand in the form of a green grant. The Tombigbee Research Council and Development has awarded Holt an $8,000 grant. Shaun Faulkner with Holt in Action, says the money will go toward "the greening of holt." It's a program to promote rebuilding, reshaping, and revitalizing the county. Holt was hit hard by the April 27th tornado. Faulkner says this is the first grant the community has recieved since the storms.
