ST. PAUL, Minnesota --
U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development State Director for Minnesota Brad Finstad today announced that USDA is making $150 million in grants available through the Community Facilities Program to help rural communities continue their recovery from the devastating effects of natural disasters.
“Modern, safe infrastructure is the bedrock of any community,” Finstad said. “When damaged, the economic prosperity of that community is put at risk. Under the leadership of President Trump and Agriculture Secretary Perdue, USDA is dedicated to assisting these rural communities in their long-term recovery following natural disasters, because when rural America prospers, all of America prospers.”
