Washington, DC -- U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.) announced today that the Village of Schram City has received a $25,000 federal grant for the purchase of a new dump truck with a snow plow. The funding comes from the Community Facilities Direct Loans and Grants program through U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development.
"This grant will replace a 30 year-old truck that Schram City has relied upon to do critical public works operations. In the winter it is incredibly important for public safety that small rural communities have the ability to clear roads of snow and ice. I am certain that Schram City will be responsible stewards of this truck like they were to their last. This is a great example of the kind of investments the federal government is making in rural America and I’m proud to support it," said Davis.
