Rural Development’s $503 thousand investment will improve town's only water supply well

MAYSVILLE, N.C., December 1, 2023 – State Director Reginald Speight and members of North Carolina Rural Development Team participated in a ribbon cutting ceremony with the town of Maysville today.

Rural Development invested $503 thousand through a USDA Community Facilities Grant to make improvements to the town's only water supply well.

“The Biden-Harris Administration is committed to improving the quality of life for rural Americans in small towns across our country,” said Speight. “This 100 percent grant of $503 thousand to update equipment and assure the town’s ability to receive clean drinking water is huge win for Maysville and Rural Development.”

The project will benefit the town's one thousand residents.
