WASHINGTON, D.C. – April 9, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, today announced support for Clare County Senior Services, which serves nearly 80,000 meals per year through its Senior Nutrition Program. The funding comes through the USDA’s Rural Development Community Facility and Economic Impact Initiative Grant programs, which fund critical infrastructure within rural communities across the country. The funding will be used to purchase new kitchen equipment for a newly-acquired Senior Services Building.
“This organization is an important resource for seniors in Clare County,” said Stabenow. “Today’s announcement is one example of the role that rural development plays in helping rural communities maintain the quality of life across Michigan.”
Clare County Senior Services will receive a $7,650 grant through the USDA’s Rural Development Community Facility Grant program and a $14,850 grant through the Economic Impact Initiative Grant program. Last summer, Senator Stabenow announced funding for the purchase of the new Senior Services Building.
Senator Stabenow is Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, which oversees the USDA and its Rural Development program.
