County to receive $45 million in grants

County to receive $45 million in grants

Last week Milam County received more great news regarding our quest for grant funding. The Texas General Land Office advised us that the county will receive $5.8 million in infrastructure funding. The funding is generally referred to as “mitigation” and the uses include transportation. This brings our grant and funding totals to an unheard-of amount of $45 million for 2021. This is more than the county has ever received in its entire history!

The Delta variant is here. There are no cases in Milam County yet but there are cases in Williamson County, right next door, so it’s only a matter of time. If you are fully vaccinated you are probably going to be OK, but if you aren’t vaccinated it’s coming for you.
