WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) announced that the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Rural program has awarded a total of $1,135,000 to six villages and counties in Southeast Ohio for various community development projects.
“We must ensure that our rural communities have the resources needed to improve the lives and safety of their residents,” said Brown.
USDA Funds for Southeast Ohio Communities are broken down below:
$89,000 to Loudon Township to purchase a 5-ton dump truck.
The funds for this grant are a part of the USDA’s Rural Development initiative. Brown helped secure a strong Rural Development title in the 2014 and 2018 Farm Bill, and is continuing to advocate for rural Ohio and programs that promote energy efficiency and clean energy across rural America.
