NEWCAP’s plan to convert the old Oconto Hospital into its new offices has been bolstered by a $100,000 state grant. The grant is to help transform the property and provide a public access point on the Oconto River. NEWCAP’s mission is to improve the community and they envisioned the property’s riverfront to include a public fishing pier and green space with docks. This grant was the largest of the 30 grants NEWCAP’s received thus far totalling $1.2 million. The total cost to renovate is around $3 million.
