JEFFERSON CITY— Missouri's capital city is one of five across the nation selected to receive federal aid to make the town a little bit greener.

Jefferson City will receive help from the federal Environmental Protection Agency to develop a plan to spruce up an area just west of the Capitol that currently includes parking lots and vacant properties.

The federal program is called "Greening America's Capitals." The other cities selected to participate are Boston; Hartford, Conn.; Charleston, W.Va. and Little Rock, Ark.
