LANSING, Mich. — State Sen. Lana Theis on Wednesday congratulated Fowlerville on the news it had been chosen to receive a state grant to replace and relocate sewer infrastructure in the village.
“Having a modern, efficient and safe sewer system is vital to ensuring our communities have access to clean water,” said Theis, R-Brighton. “My congratulations to the people of Fowlerville and its leadership on being chosen for this grant, which will go a long way toward funding this important infrastructure upgrade project.”
The Michigan Strategic Fund (MSF) awarded Fowlerville $1.9 million in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding for the project that will make sewer upgrades, primarily in the village’s 100-year floodplain.
The grant requires a $896,069 local match from Fowlerville.
The village was one of 11 Michigan communities to earn the funding, which is designed to support low- and moderate- income communities in making necessary improvements or upgrades to their existing public infrastructure related to water, sewer and wastewater systems.
In addition, MSF approved up to $550,000 in CDBG funds to provide administrative services to assist the communities with the compliance and administrative requirements of the awards.
