WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) announced that the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) has awarded a $250,000 grant to Columbiana County to install a new sewer system and a 50,000-gallon daily wastewater treatment plant in the Village of Hanoverton. The funds will help provide better sewer service to seven businesses and 153 households in the village.
“Strong water and sewer infrastructure is critical to Ohio communities’ ability to be economically competitive,” Brown said. “This funding will help to improve access to critical water infrastructure for Hanoverton residents and business owners. I will continue to advocate for resources and push for robust infrastructure funding in Washington so that all Ohioans have equal access the infrastructure they need to flourish.”
In addition to the $250,000 grant from ARC, local, state, and other federal funds will provide $5,402,211 to bring the total funding amount to $5,652,211.
ARC is an economic development agency of the federal government with the mission to build community capacity and strengthen economic growth in the Appalachian region.
