$61,000 USDA Grant for Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska
Kansas Ag Connection - 10/16/2020

U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development State Director for Kansas Lynne Hinrichsen announced that USDA is investing $61,100 for sanitation in Brown County, Kan.

"Proper community infrastructure equipment is necessary for communities to provide essential public services," Hinrichsen said. "Rural communities rely on modern infrastructure to conduct basic civic function to their citizens.

The Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska will use a $61,100 Community Facilities Grant to assist with the purchase of a sanitation truck. The Tribe currently has two older sanitation trucks that are no longer reliable and need significant repairs. This project will allow the tribe to purchase a new vehicle that will be used as the primary waste disposal vehicle. This new vehicle will serve nearly 12,700 people in the area, both tribal and non-tribal, with improved sanitation services. This civic improvement is made possible with a $113,750 contribution from the Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska from its own resources.

Rural Development funding for today's announcement was made available through the $150 million in grants included in the Additional Supplemental Appropriations for Disaster Relief Act signed into law on June 6, 2019. These grants are to help eligible rural communities continue their recovery from the devastating effects of natural disasters.

Grants may be used for relief in areas affected by Hurricanes Michael and Florence; wildfires in 2018; and other natural disasters where the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has provided a notice declaring a Major Disaster Declaration and assigned a FEMA disaster recovery (DR) number.
