U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, today announced support for Filer Township in Manistee County. The $1,500,000 grant will be used to support necessary improvements to the community's wastewater system. This investment is part of Senator Stabenow's 2014 Farm Bill, which increased funding for the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Rural Development Water and Environmental programs.
“Rural towns thrive when the city, county and state put in place sound and reliable infrastructure to support the families who live there,” said Heitkamp. “These funds will help cover part of the costs for Harvey and Michigan to make needed improvements and upgrades to their current water and waste disposal systems and help keep North Dakota communities strong and safe.”
