The funds have been awarded by the U. S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development, which serves as the lead federal entity for rural development needs. They include a grant of $2,520,000 and a loan of $2,650,000.
Sen. Shelby said, “I am pleased to announce this important funding for the City of Demopolis. These funds will provide them with the opportunity to expand their sewer system, which may lead to future economic growth in the area. I applaud the U.S. Department of Agriculture for following through on their commitment to rural development needs.”
