WASHINGTON D.C. — The United States Department of Agriculture announced a new investment in Van Buren County Friday, totaling $41,000.

 
"This new rural development investment will help Van Buren County thrive and grow. By bringing local leaders together on a county-wide economic development plan, we can chart the course for a brighter, more prosperous future. I’m particularly pleased the grant will focus on improving Internet connectivity, something I’ve discussed at length with folks – our farmers in particular – across Southwest Michigan."

The USDA rural Development investment will be used to fund a comprehensive county-wide economic development plan for Van Buren County.
