Governor Pat Quinn has announced $629,000 in state investments in central Illinois to support critical public works improvements, part of nearly $2 million to help rural communities improve their water and sewer systems.
The investments were made under the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO)’s Community Development Assistance Program, which targets areas with populations of less than 50,000 that are outside of urban counties.
The communities receiving funds in central Illinois include:
- Christian County: Taylorville, design storm sewer separations. $120,000 grant, total project cost $150,000.
- Montgomery County: Butler, design water system rehabilitation. $135,000 grant, total project cost $135,000.
