The Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs has announced 12 Hoosier towns and cities have received more than $8 million in federal funding. OCRA says the communities will be able to use the funds to address water quality and infrastructure issues. The funding comes from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Community Development Block Grant program. OCRA says the disbursement of the funds will be delayed until after the holidays.
“These grants are vital to Indiana’s economic success as these projects should improve the quality of life in these rural communities,” said Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch. “Collaborations between federal, state and local partners as they invest in the state’s water infrastructure is a win for Hoosiers as we work toward a stronger Indiana.”
Among those to receive grants was the Towns of Lawrence and Beech Grove in Marion County.
