Corrales MainStreet was awarded $40,000 for its cultural Economic development plan, per the release.

“Corrales MainStreet is thrilled to receive these funds which will allow us to move forward in the authorization process for our Arts & Cultural district,” Corrales MainStreet Executive Director Angela Gutierrez said in the release.
