WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - More than $53 million worth of redevelopment projects are planned in Wilmington and three smaller towns, boosted by $4.3 million from a taxpayer-funded grant program designed to spur downtown development.

The News Journal reports that private developers and at least one religious organization will share the grants announced Monday for projects in Wilmington, Dover, Georgetown and Laurel.

The program was created in 2014.

In Wilmington, planned projects include a renovation of the bar inside the Queen Theater and redevelopment of a vacant building into a hotel and restaurant. Other projects include a medical office building in Dover being built by Faithworks LLC and a building in Georgetown being converted into a laundry facility, beauty salon, apartments and office space.
