$2.96 million Recovery Act Grant to create jobs, boost development in Fremont

WASHINGTON, D.C., June 23, 2009: U.S. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke today announced a $2.96 million Economic Development Administration (EDA) grant to the city of Fremont, Ohio to help make water infrastructure improvements to serve business needs. The project, made possible because of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, is expected to create additional jobs and private investment in the region. 

“The Obama Administration is committed to creating jobs, encouraging innovation and improving our nation’s economic competitiveness,” Locke said. “This grant will help put people back to work and boost private investment by providing the critical infrastructure needed to retain the city’s largest employer and to attract new businesses and industry to the region.”   

The Recovery Act was signed into law by President Barack Obama on February 17, 2009.  It is providing immediate relief for American families and jump-starting billions of dollars in new projects that are creating jobs, improving infrastructure and strengthening local economies.

“Last year I discussed water and sewer infrastructure needs with Mayor Overmyer at a roundtable I held in Fremont,” U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown said. “Improving Ohio’s aging water systems is key to economic growth. These Recovery Act funds will help Fremont attract jobs and spur future economic development in the region.”
