Representative Humphrey visited the Greene County offices to present a $150,000 check from the North Carolina General Assembly. The funding, comprising a $150,000 appropriation from the North Carolina General Assembly and a $15,000 grant awarded by the Golden LEAF Foundation through their SITE program, was announced by Golden LEAF on December 7.
