Woodbury County non-profits won't see money this year from MRHD

Posted:

The group that distributes Argosy Casino revenue to Siouxland groups won't fund grants in 2014.

Missouri River Historical Development's president says the Argosy's owner, Penn National Gaming, hasn't given MRHD the negotiated percentage of its profits for the last 13-months.

MRHD will honor a $10,000 pledge to the Flight 232 Exhibit, which will be located at the Mid American Museum of Aviation and Transportation, near Sioux Gateway. But, that money will only come after the new Hard Rock Hotel and Casino opens this summer.

As for the other grants, MRHD president Mark Monson says he's disappointed that the group can't help other organizations. "There's a large need in the community. Folks that are living day to day, they need help. And we feel bad that we're not helping those non-profits, support those folks that are in real great need at this point," said Mark Monson, MRHD President.

MRHD does plan on giving grants next year. The amount will be determined at a later time.
