WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, chairman of the Senate Agriculture Appropriations Committee and a member of the Agriculture Committee, today announced that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development (RD) has awarded a grant of $1,436,900 to the City of New England. The funds are in addition to other RD loan and grant funds totaling $1.8 million, and will be used to finish a $5 million rehabilitation project for New England’s water and waste system.
