Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik has announced over $200,000 in USDA Community Facilities Program grants to be awarded to the Village of Champlain and the Brushton Volunteer Fire Association. The Village of Champlain will receive $71,000 in funding to be used to purchase a replacement plow truck. The Brushton Volunteer Fire Association will receive $193,000 to purchase a fire engine. USDA Rural Development provides loans and grants to help expand economic opportunities and create jobs in rural areas.

“I am proud to deliver tax dollars back into our North Country communities in the form of this important Rural Development funding,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “This crucial funding will support our municipalities and provide necessary resources to our first responders as they serve their rural areas. I look forward to witnessing the positive impact that USDA funds continue to make in my district, and I will continue to advocate for these essential programs.”
