Congressman Chris Collins Announces USDA Funding to Improve Water Infrastructure for the Town of York

Jun 26, 2019
Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Chris Collins (NY-27) today announced that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is providing a $1,038,000.00 loan and a $830,000.00 grant to the town of York in Livingston County. This loan and grant will help eliminate the public health risks associated with the poor quality and quantity of ground water in the area.

“The USDA’s investment in the Town of York will improve the quality of life for residents,” said Congressman Collins. “Access to clean water is essential, and I applaud the Trump administration for investing in rural communities, especially in Western New York.”

The funds will be used to construct the Anderson Road waterline extension and extend the public water service to 189 residential users in the town that do not have safe potable water.

Rural community leaders can apply for these funds electronically by using the interactive RD Apply tool. They can also apply through one of USDA Rural Development’s state or field offices.
