Washington, D.C.  – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik has announced a total of $5,655,000 in USDA Rural Development funding to be awarded to the Village of Potsdam and the Town of Whitehall.

Whitehall will receive $3,760,000 to renovate their sewer system and reduce storm water entering the sanitary sewer system.

“I am proud to announce this significant funding for two North Country towns,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “These tax dollars will be returned to our district to complete much needed sewer system replacements and to improve water quality for residents. I am proud to continually support the USDA’s Rural Development grant program, which many of our North Country communities rely on, and I look forward to witnessing the positive impact this program continues to have.”
