WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) announced $37,750 has been awarded to Howland Township by the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) to create an infrastructure plan for Trumbull County’s Golden Triangle area, home to several manufacturing, industrial, and warehouse facilities. The plan will help local governments prioritize their investments in infrastructure to ensure business stability and promote growth. The total project cost is $75,884.

“This is great news for Trumbull County,” Brown said. “This federal investment in the area’s infrastructure will lead to more reliable service and more efficient operations for local businesses. Projects like this help boost the economy and make the region more competitive.”

Brown has been working to promote economic development across Ohio by supporting the growth of manufacturing. His bipartisan manufacturing jobs legislation – which passed the House of Representatives last week – would bring together industry, universities and community colleges, federal agencies, and all levels of government, to accelerate manufacturing innovation in technologies with commercial applications. The Revitalize American Manufacturing and Innovation Act (RAMI) would create thousands of high-paying, high-tech manufacturing jobs while enhancing the United States’ role as the world’s leader in advanced manufacturing.
