U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell said Thursday that Union County and the city of Morganfield were receiving a $3 million competitive federal grant to make much-needed improvements to the area’s water infrastructure.
The funding is being distributed by the U.S. Economic Development Administration and was made available by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
“Union County is thankful and excited to receive news of the Economic Development Administration’s $3 million CARES Act Recovery Assistance investment,” said Union County Judge-Executive Adam O’Nan. “This EDA grant will allow us to complete much-needed sewer infrastructure improvements."
Sen. McConnell says the CARES Act has previously delivered $4 million to Union County, and that overall, Kentucky has received more than $13 billion in relief.
