Shelby Announces $160,902 for Dallas County

U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.), a senior member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the Delta Regional Authority (DRA) will award $160,902 to the Dallas County Commission for a water service extension.
“It is essential that the residents of Dallas County have access to a safe and reliable water system,” said Shelby. “This funding will allow the North Dallas Water Authority to extend water service to 21 households, and provide public water use to sixty-six citizens.”

The Delta Regional Authority grants target projects that will improve infrastructure in distressed counties and develop transportation infrastructure that will facilitate economic development.  DRA also provides funding to job training programs that work with existing public education institutions.
