Five western Kentucky groups are a step closer to making an impact in their communities.

Impact 100 Owensboro announced the five finalists for their impact grants. They include Owensboro Symphony, Girls Inc., and Owensboro YMCA.

Two finalists will get a $100,000 grant, while the other three will receive more than $10,000.

"A lot of different constituencies can benefit from them," said Helen Mountjoy. "Not just people struggling with issues like addiction, but people who want to take their kids for an afternoon of walking in the woods, or have their child learn to play a string instrument."

The winners of the $100,000 grants will be named on October 23.
