Nearly $23 million aimed at 3 rural Tennessee projects

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — U.S. Rep. David Kustoff has announced nearly $23 million in federal loans and grants for community facilities projects in three rural West Tennessee counties.

The Republican congressman's office said in a news release Wednesday that the funding for the projects is part of a $153 million investment by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to build and improve important community facilities throughout the country.

Kustoff said Crockett County is getting a $18.3 million loan to expand and renovate its middle and high schools.

Obion County is receiving a $500,000 loan and $150,000 grant to build an airplane hangar.

A $4 million loan is going to the town of Somerville to construct a fire station and renovate an existing law enforcement facility, Kustoff said.
