In a ceremony on June 21, 2012, Anita J. (Janie) Dunning, USDA Rural Development Missouri State Director, presented a Certificate of Appreciation to Pioneer Trails Regional Planning Commission. Pioneer Trails Regional Planning Commission received grant funds in the amount of $49,601 from USDA Rural Development’s Rural Business Opportunity Grant. The funds will be used to develop and implement the Rural Waste Synergy Network in Johnson, Lafayette, Morgan, Pettis and Saline Counties in Missouri. In addition the Missouri Department of Natural Resources Solid Waste Management Program contributed $24,997 and Region-F West Central Missouri Solid Waste Management District contributed $27,000 towards the total cost of $101,598.
“I’m very pleased Johnson, Lafayette, Morgan, Pettis and Saline counties will now have the resources necessary to support job growth in our rural communities by developing and implementing the Rural Waste Synergy Network,” said U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill. “I plan to continue working to provide our rural communities with opportunities such as this to improve our economy and bolster jobs.”
“I am pleased that a $49,601 USDA Rural Business Opportunity Grant is contributing to a total cost of $101,598 to develop and implement the Rural Waste Synergy Network in Johnson, Lafayette, Morgan, Pettis and Saline Counties,” said Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler. “This important project will allow rural businesses to reuse and remanufacture material into value-added end products or reprocessed materials.”
