Trump Administration Invests $733,000 in Community Facilities in Three Rural Oklahoma Communities

Trump Administration Invests $733,000 in Community Facilities in Three Rural Oklahoma Communities The Trump Administration today announced that the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is investing $733,000 to help improve essential public services in rural Oklahoma.

“Oklahoma is happy to receive this funding for our citizens, especially our children. We are proud to provide financial assistance to these rural communities to improve waste collection, purchase student transportation and construct a school building,” said Dr. Lee Denney USDA Rural Development Oklahoma State Director. “Under the leadership of President Trump and Agriculture Secretary Perdue, USDA has been working tirelessly to be a strong partner to rural Oklahoma in building stronger and healthier communities, because we know when rural America thrives, all of America thrives.”

The investments in rural Oklahoma include:

• Maysville Municipal Authority will use a $162,000 loan and a $50,000 grant to purchase a new trash collection truck. This 2020 truck will replace an old truck that requires frequent costly repairs. The Authority provides collection services to more than 1,200 residential, commercial and rural customers.
• Webbers Falls Public Schools will use a $421,200 grant to purchase three buses, a tractor and equipment and to construct a new school agricultural barn. Due to floods, their fleet of buses and their ag barn were damaged to the point that they could not be utilized. More than 600 citizens will benefit from this investment.
• Moffett Public Schools will use a $99,800 grant to purchase two buses. These 2020 passenger buses will replace buses that were destroyed due to flooding in May and June of 2019. Moffett, Oklahoma has 128 residents.
USDA Rural Development provides loans and grants to help expand economic opportunities and create jobs in rural areas.

This assistance supports infrastructure improvements; business development; housing; community facilities such as schools, public safety and health care; and high-speed internet access in rural areas. For more information, visit www.rd.usda.gov.
