MARQUETTE, Mich. (AP) - Efforts to deal with blighted buildings in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula are getting a boost.

The Michigan State Housing Development Authority has awarded a more than $83,000 Community Development Block Grant to Marquette County and Houghton County. Officials say the funding is expected to help demolish four or five blighted residential structures.

The buildings slated for demolition are in Marquette County’s Republic Township and the Houghton County village of Calumet.

MSHDA administers the federally-funded Community Development Block Grant program through its Community Development division.
