Representative Cheri Bustos on Wednesday announced more than 2 million dollars in grants and loans for the Village of Woodhull. The money comes as an allotment for the village to improve its sewer system. According to a statement from Representative Bustos, $1,198,000 in grants and $1,200,000 in loans has been allocated for Woodhull for water projects aimed at ensuring the state can continue to provide the 811 residents of Woodhull with a sewer system that meets environmental guidelines. Woodhull had already received more than $3 million dollars in water and waste funds from the USDA earlier this year. “As an advocate for rural America, I understand that modern water infrastructure is a necessity, not an amenity, for our communities to thrive,” said Congresswoman Bustos. “These job-creating Rural Development dollars will go a long way in giving small towns like ours an opportunity to grow and succeed.”
