WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown on Tuesday announced that the National Parks Service is awarding a significant financial grant to restore a historic Naval submarine that calls Cleveland home.

The $395,050 grant was awarded through the Save America's Treasures grant program and will be allocated toward restorations for the USS Cod, which served in the Pacific during second World War. The Cleveland Coordinating Committee for Cod, based in Richfield, is responsible for maintaining the 80-year-old vessel.

"This grant ensures that the U.S.S. Cod will remain accessible," Brown said in a statement. "This investment will help fuel the local economy in the area, while preserving this historic vessel for generations to come."
