U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, Chairwoman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, today announced support for Hampton Township to purchase a new police cruiser. This award, made available through the United States Department of Agriculture's Rural Development Community Facilities Grant Program, will help Hampton Township update their aging fleet of cruisers.
Senator Stabenow said: "Our first responders provide critical services to rural communities like Hampton Township throughout Michigan. This support will help the Hampton Township Police Department continue to keep the community safe."
The Hampton Township will receive $8,000 to help support the purchase. Stabenow is Chairwoman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, which has jurisdiction over rural development projects.
