Shimkus Announces USDA Grant Awarded to Odin Township

November 6, 2017

Congressman John Shimkus (R, Illinois-15) announced recently that Odin Township was awarded a USDA Rural Development grant of $23,300.
The funds will be used to purchase a Road Grader for the Township of Odin. This Road Grader will replace the Township’s existing equipment that is in disrepair, and it will be used to plow snow in the winter as well as repair gravel roads for safe passage throughout the Township. The Township contributed $26,700 for a total project cost of $50,000.

“I congratulate Odin Township on being awarded funds for this project,” Shimkus said. “Grants from the USDA make necessary development and public safety projects possible for rural communities. My office can assist with rural development grants as well as any other federal grant program application.”
