36 Illinois communities to receive $14.5 million federal grant

DURAND - The Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity announced that the Villages of Durand and Stockton, and the City of LaSalle, would be three of thirty-six communities across the state to benefit from $14.5 million in federal grants for public infrastructure.

Thirty-six communities across 29 counties will receive public infrastructure funds from the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG).

“Public infrastructure is important not only for the day-to-day function of Illinoisans, but to bolster growth and economic development within a community,” said Governor Rauner. “These grant dollars will be used for projects such as water, sanitary and sewer system improvements that will greatly support our low-income communities and attract more opportunities for residents.”

The Village of Durand will receive $500,000 for potable water well improvments.

The Village of Stockton will receive $453,700 for water distribution improvements.

The City of LaSalle will receive $500,000 for separate storm sewer flows.
