Hoeven: USDA Awards Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians More than $1.3 Million in Federal Funding

WASHINGTON — Senator John Hoeven, who serves on the U.S. Senate Agriculture Committee and Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee, today announced that the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Rural Development has awarded a grant of $1,378,003 to the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians. The funds will be used to construct a functional waste transfer facility, which includes a maintenance building, performing paving improvements and implementing a basic recycling program.

“One of the most important ways we can support development in the rural parts of our state is to invest in infrastructure that will allow communities to grow and thrive,” Hoeven said. “Today’s USDA funds will do just that by supporting the creation of a safer and more functional waste transfer facility as well as implementing a basic recycling program.”
