USDA Rural Development has awarded $50,000 to the Village of Byron to be leveraged with $16,700 from the Village to buy equipment to furnish the village community center along with the new library area.
“USDA funds will be used to help a small community to enhance their community center and library with the equipment needed to fully utilize the facility,” said Community Programs Specialist Luann Brown, USDA Rural Development.
President Obama’s plan for rural America has brought about historic investment and resulted in stronger rural communities. Under the President’s leadership, these investments in housing, community facilities, businesses and infrastructure have empowered rural America to continue leading the way – strengthening America’s economy, small towns and rural communities. USDA’s investments in rural communities support the rural way of life that stands as the backbone of our American values.
