Senator Zaffirini Announces Funding for City of Taft Improvements

(AUSTIN) —Senator Judith Zaffirini, D-Laredo, announced today (Tuesday) that
the City of Taft will receive a $300,000 Rural Sustainability Fund-State GR
Supplement grant from the Texas Community Development Block Grant Program
(TxCDBG). The grant will allow the city to rehabilitate the clarifier at the
wastewater treatment plant and to install one brush rotor, one new generator and 25
valve upgrades throughout the city.

“The Texas Department of Rural Affairs (TDRA) was established to administer
these funds and to provide these critical services to local communities,” Senator
Zaffirini said. “I am delighted that Taft will benefit from enhanced water and sewer
infrastructure, thereby greatly improving public health and safety.”

TxCDBG is administered by TDRA for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban
Development.
