Grassley Announces Grant to Birmingham

Senator Chuck Grassley today was notified that the United States Department of Agriculture has approved an $81,000 loan and $10,000 grant to the City of Birmingham to be used to complete the community's combined city hall, child care and Head Start facility.

"This is another great example of federal dollars being put to good use in rural America," Grassley said. "By making money available to complete these important community projects, we are investing in the quality of life for southeast Iowans."

The facility will be owned by the city, with the child care programs operated by the Van Buren School District under a management agreement.
