Shimkus Announces USDA Loan and Grant Awarded to The Village of Herrick
Congressman John Shimkus (R, Illinois-15) announced today that the Village of Herrick was awarded a USDA Rural Development loan of $1,000,000 and a grant of $540,000. The funds will be used to finance upgrades to the existing water treatment facility and replace aging water mains. The Village's service lines are over 40 years old and very difficult to repair.

My office can assist with rural development grants as well as any other federal grant program application.”
