CARBONDALE – (RealEstateRama) — U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) today announced $151,500 in federal funding for the North Central Illinois Council of Governments to support rural community development projects. Today’s funding, provided through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Community Development Initiative Grant, will provide assistance to benefit 27 lower-income communities located in six surrounding counties: Bureau, Grundy, LaSalle, Livingston, Marshall, Putnam, and Stark.

This assistance will include a combination of workshops, group trainings, direct technical assistance, informational material, consultation meetings, and sponsoring attendance at the state’s annual Rural Community Economic Development Conference.
