NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Fifteen Tennessee communities have been selected to receive state grants to prepare sites for economic development projects.

The grants will go toward completing infrastructure and engineering improvements for certified sites in rural communities.

The grants averaging $380,000 were awarded to projects in Brownsville, Centerville, Coffee County, Dresden, Gibson County, Humboldt, Lawrence Count, Montgomery County, Pulaski, Ripley, Roane County, Shelbyville, Tiptonville, Union City and Washington County.
