North Carolina municipalities, water districts receive millions in USDA funding

Rural communities and organizations across the country will be sharing in $5.2 billion in funding for critical infrastructure following an announcement from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

The funds specifically target water and wastewater projects, high-speed broadband internet, and electricity. According to the USDA, “This announcement follows the recent passage of President Biden’s historic Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and reflects the many ways USDA Rural Development’s programs are helping people, businesses and communities address critical infrastructure needs to help rural America build back better.”

North Carolina is receiving more than $400 million, with more than $350 million going to rural electricity corporations and cooperatives. N.C. municipalities and water districts receiving funding from USDA for vital water and wastewater projects are:

  • Town of Crossnore: $245,000
  • Town of Mount Pleasant: $8,053,000
  • City of Hamlet: $17,569,000
  • Town of Carthage: $1,328,000
  • Town of Grover: $71,000
  • Millennium Water Association (Hertford): $412,000
  • Town of Siler City: $16,358,000

We congratulate these communities on receiving USDA funds!
