FRANKFORT, Ky. (October 22, 2018) – The Department for Local Government (DLG) has announced an Area Development Fund (ADF) grant of $14,232.61 to Floyd County Fiscal Court.

The grant will allow the county to purchase water pipe, brass fittings and couplers for installation of potable water lines.

“These funds will ultimately help expand water service to households that are unserved or underserved,” DLG Commissioner Sandra K. Dunahoo said. “Reliable access to clean drinking water is of vital importance to public health. I’m pleased DLG could play a role in this project.”

“Projects involving maintenance or renovation of public infrastructure are often costly,” Sen. Johnny Ray Turner said. “This award lessens the county’s reliance on loans while still allowing the project to move forward. I’m thankful for this investment and being able to help facilitate this project.”

“I’d like to thank Commissioner Dunahoo and her staff for their assistance directing these funds toward Floyd County,” Rep. Larry D. Brown said. “I look forward to seeing the impact this project has on the lives of Floyd County residents.”

The ADF Grant program was established by the 1976 Kentucky General Assembly to fund projects that contribute to community or industrial development. The funds are administered by DLG, an arm of the Office of the Governor dedicated to supporting local officials and communities. For more information, visit dlg.ky.gov.
