Gov. Kay Ivey has announced grants totaling $1.55 million to help eight Alabama communities address and improve infrastructure. The town of Carrollton is one of the eight communities who received a grant. Carrollton was awarded $150,000 to rehabilitate the town’s wastewater treatment plant lagoons.
The funds from the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) will enable the communities to improve sewer systems, roads, and other concerns.
“Through our strong partnership with the Appalachian Regional Commission, Alabama communities are able to address often-pressing infrastructure issues that can affect the health, welfare, and other needs of their residents,” Ivey said. “I am thankful for this program that for more than 50 years has helped improve lives in so many ways, and I am pleased to announce these funds that will provide vital aid to help these communities improve infrastructure.”
