Senator Stabenow Announces Support for Kalkaska to Buy New Snow Removal EquipmentWednesday, April 01, 2015
U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, today announced support for the Village of Kalkaska. This funding comes through the USDA's Rural Development Community Facility Direct Loan and Grant program, which funds critical infrastructure in rural communities across the country. The $173,000 loan and $11,250 grant will be used to help the community purchase a front-end loader to clear snow from roads and parking areas during the winter.
"This investment is great news for Kalkaska," said Stabenow. "Today's announcement is one example of the role that rural development plays in keeping families safe across Michigan."
Senator Stabenow is Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, which oversees the USDA and its Rural Development program.
