USDA AWARDS $4 MILLION IN GRANTS, LOANS TO NEW VILLAGE OF MAINE

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has awarded $4 million in grants and loans to the Village of Maine to make improvements to Brokaw’s water system, U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis., said Monday. The rural development money includes a $2.89 million grant and $1.2 million loan to help solve Brokaw’s financial troubles following the closure of the Wausau Paper mill, Baldwin said. “This investment will help Brokaw continue recovering and rebuilding, while providing the clean water that our rural communities deserve,” she said in a statement. The money will improve the water system in Brokaw and Maine, which has faced water quality, efficiency and freezing issues since the mill closing. http://www.waow.com/story/36081172/2017/08/07/usda-awards-4-million-in-grants-loans-to-new-village-of-maine
