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.
