Allegan has received a $4-million federal grant to stabilize an eroding river bluff that could threaten the North American headquarters of drug maker Perrigo.

Brighton-based ASTI Environmental, an environmental and engineering services firm, said it worked with the City of Allegan in securing the grant.

The Hazard Mitigation Assistance Grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency is expected to cover 75 percent of the project's cost.

The city plans to work with Perrigo on the project, which includes stabilizing the slope's grade and soils with native vegetation. An archaeological study is expected to proceed during the public notice period.

Dublin-based Perrigo makes generic over-the-counter and prescription medications and infant formula.
