Kamrar gets $50,000 USDA Rural Development grant

KAMRAR — The community of Kamrar received a $50,000 USDA grant to purchase a new snowplow to facilitate winter storm operations, U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development State Director in Iowa Theresa Greenfield announced Tuesday.

The project will help make transportation routes safer for motorists and pedestrians in the rural Hamilton County community, Greenfield’s office said in a media release.

Overall, the agency is investing $29,318,797 in 10 rural Iowa projects to expand business opportunities and hospital access and to support waste water sanitation planning, the media release stated.

“From hospitals to fire stations to supporting small businesses, USDA is investing in rural Iowa,” said Director Greenfield. “Under the leadership of President (Joe) Biden, Vice President (Kamala) Harris, and Secretary (Tom) Vilsack, USDA is working with local leaders to build and grow their communities.”
