Baldwin is recipient of grant

Delta Regional Authority (DRA) announced that they are awarding over $31 million in investments to 34 projects across Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi and Missouri through the Community Infrastructure Fund (CIF).

Funding for this program was made available, in part, by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law signed by President Biden, a key part of his Investing in America agenda to grow local economies from the middle out and bottom up and create more resilient and healthier communities across the country.

The sewer force main project in Baldwin has been awarded more than $203,000 to replace 2,650 linear feet of a 6 inch force main with an 8 inch force main and install larger impellers on lift station pumps.
