‘Recess’-ion Spending: Feds Fund Dairy Home Delivery, Organic Chickens

President Barack Obama was on vacation and the congressional recess was in progress but taxpayer dollars were still active last week. Here’s a round up of some recent federal grant announcements:

Goodale Farms in New York has received $80,000 from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Value-Added Producer Grant program.

According to an article in The Suffolk Times, the dairy farm will soon “offer convenient home delivery” with the grant funds.

A Newsworks.com article says that the Delaware Airpark has received a $5 million federal grant for improvements and upgrades.

“The multimillion dollar grant will help the airport with a multi-year project to expand the airport by constructing a new runway, its parallel taxiway, connector taxiways and apron system,” according to the report.
