Senator Stabenow Announces Support for Jonesville to Buy New Fire TruckWednesday, March 25, 2015
U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, today announced support for the Jonesville Volunteer Fire Department in Hillsdale County. The funding comes through the USDA's Rural Development Community Facility Grant program, which funds critical infrastructure within rural communities across the country. The $37,500 grant will be used to help the community purchase a new fire truck to replace two old trucks.
"Firefighters have to cover many miles to protect our families, homes and communities," said Stabenow. "This new fire truck for Jonesville will help make sure there is always someone there to quickly respond in an emergency."
Senator Stabenow is Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, which oversees the USDA and its Rural Development program.
