Delano Township to Purchase Two New Municipal Vehicles with USDA Rural Development Loan and Grant Combo

Delano Township will soon be able to purchase two new municipal vehicles thanks to a United States Department of Agriculture Rural Development loan and grant combination.
“Rural Development is happy to provide funding for important municipal vehicles such as the ones being purchased in Delano Township,” said Rural Development State Director Tom Williams. “These vehicles will ensure that the township remains a safe place to work and live year-round.”

Rural Development was able to provide funding through a low interest Community Facility loan of $80,200, while the Community Facility grant totals $41,000. This loan and grant combo will be used to purchase two new vehicles. The first is a Ford F-350 equipped with a snow plow and accessories, while the second is a Ford F-550 dump truck with a snow plow and spreader package.

In Pennsylvania last year, the USDA Community Facility Program invested over $199 million in rural Pennsylvania through 58 community facilities loans and grants. Community Facilities programs help build, expand, rehabilitate, purchase, and support the development of police and emergency fire stations and equipment, museums, child care centers, hospitals, clinics, schools, and more.
