North Dakota Ag Connection - 08/12/2020

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is investing $41,000 to purchase equipment used for city needs.

"Ensuring rural communities are able to provide adequate services to its residents is a priority for USDA," said Clare Carlson, USDA Rural Development state director for North Dakota. "This equipment will be utilized for critical services to ensure residents are able to travel the roads safely in the winter, as well as provide many other essential functions. Under the leadership of President Trump and Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, the USDA is dedicated to assisting rural communities like the city of Finley because the success of rural America is our driving force."

The city of Finley will use a $41,000 Community Facilities Grant to purchase a payloader machine. The replacement payloader will be properly equipped to handle various jobs, such as street and landfill maintenance, and snow removal. The current equipment is beyond useful life, requiring regular costly maintenance. The new payloader will be properly equipped and have the necessary safety features.

Funding was made available through the $150 million in grants included in the Additional Supplemental Appropriations for Disaster Relief Act. These grants are to help eligible rural communities continue their recovery from the devastating effects of natural disasters.
