Sen. Cornyn announces rural development grant & loan for Lubbock

LUBBOCK, TX (PRESS RELEASE) - The City of Lubbock will receive a $660,600 grant and a $1,981,000 loan to assist with upgrades to the water treatment plant in Lubbock that serves the rural communities of Brownfield, Lamesa, Slaton, Tahoka, and O'Donnell, U.S. Sen. John Cornyn announced Friday.

The funding comes from a Rural Development grant and loan through the United States Department of Agriculture.

"This is good news for the future of economic development in the area, as the investment will boost local jobs and expand opportunities in the area," Sen. Cornyn said. "This is good news for the Lubbock area, and I applaud the local community for working to secure this funding."

Rural Development, a division of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, achieves its mission by helping individuals, communities and businesses in rural areas obtain the financial and technical assistance needed to address their diverse and unique needs.
