CONGRESSMAN CHRIS COLLINS ANNOUNCES USDA FUNDING TO IMPROVE WATER INFRASTRUCTURE FOR THE TOWN OF BERGEN

Aug 8, 2019
Press Release

Clarence, NY - Congressman Chris Collins (NY-27) today announced that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is providing a $5,900,000 loan and a $3,058,000 grant to the town of Bergen in Genesee County. This loan and grant will be used to install a water distribution system.

“I applaud the Trump Administration for investing federal funds back into the town of Bergen to improve rural water infrastructure,” said Congressman Collins. “Now residents will be provided with reliable water which will yield key health benefits and spur economic growth.”

This project will extend public water service to 335 residential connections and to 32 commercial properties in the town that do not have safe access to 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.
