Commissioner Miller Announces $600,000 Grant Award to Grow Jobs in Haskell (4/22/2015)

AUSTIN - Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller today announced the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) has awarded $600,000 to the city of Haskell for street, water and sewer improvements through the Texas Capital Fund (TCF). The award will support operations at Bailey Toliver Chevrolet, LLP and create five new full-time jobs, while also retaining 19 existing jobs.

“The Texas Capital Fund is a smart investment that grows jobs and rejuvenates local economies across Texas,” Commissioner Miller said. “This award will help enhance economic development in Haskell, and I salute these efforts to support business expansion.”

Federally funded through the Texas Community Development Block Grant program, TCF provides more than $8 million in competitive awards each year to boost economic development in small Texas communities.

TCF is administered by TDA’s Office of Rural Affairs and provides funding for projects in four different program areas: Infrastructure Development, Real Estate Development, Main Street Improvements and Downtown Revitalization.
