WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) announced that the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) has awarded $958,885 to the Village of Delta for a water treatment project that will create up to 165 jobs and help the community leverage more than $81 million in private investments. The funds for this project will go toward construction of a new raw water pump station to provide water treatment services to the area.
“Water infrastructure is critical to Ohio communities’ ability to create jobs and compete,” Brown said. “This investment will help attract jobs and businesses to the area, and improve access to safe and clean water to the Village of Delta.”
EDA grants are awarded through a competitive process based upon the application’s merit, the applicant’s eligibility, and the availability of funds. More information on EDA’s grant process and investment process can be found at www.eda.gov.
