Senator Stabenow Announces Support for Northern Michigan Police to Buy New Police VehiclesTuesday, March 31, 2015
U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, today announced support for the Clare and Standish Police Departments and Gladwin County Sheriff's Office. This funding comes through the USDA's Rural Development Economic Impact Initiative Grant and Community Facility Grant programs, which fund critical infrastructure in rural communities across the country. The funds will be used to help the communities purchase three new police vehicles.
"Police officers have to cover many miles to protect our families, homes, and communities," said Stabenow. "These new police cars for Clare, Standish and Gladwin County will help make sure there is always someone there to quickly respond in an emergency."
Clare will receive $15,750 and Standish will receive $20,250 in Economic Impact Initiative Grants. Gladwin County will receive $9,000 from the Community Facility Grant program.
Senator Stabenow is Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, which oversees the USDA and its Rural Development program.
