Johnson Statement on Economic Development Administration Grants for Southwestern Wisconsin
WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) said the following after the Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration awarded two grants to help reduce flooding impact in southwestern Wisconsin.
“I want to thank the Trump Administration for its continued attentiveness to southwestern Wisconsin’s needs. These grants will help southwestern Wisconsin be more prepared to deal with flooding and its economic impacts.”
In addition, the EDA is awarding a $328,972 grant to the county of Richland and the Southwestern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission to develop an economic resiliency plan that will diversify economic opportunities and reduce future flood impacts on Richland County’s economic base.
