Niantic Receives $500,000 for Water Distribution Improvements

May 11 – The Village of Niantic has been awarded $500,000 for water distribution improvements.

Niantic is one of 36 communities across 29 Illinois counties that received $14.5 million from a small cities program through the Community Development Block Grant. The grant comes from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Governor Bruce Rauner said, “Public infrastructure is important not only for the day-to-day function of Illinoisans, but to bolster growth and economic development within a community.” He continued to say the grant dollars will go towards projects like water, sanitary, and sewer system improvements around the state.
