USDA Rural Development Celebrates Muskegon Family Care Open House
EAST LANSING, Oct. 5, 2011 – U.S. Dept. of Agriculture Rural Development State Director for Michigan James J. Turner today commemorated grand opening and open house for Muskegon Family Care’s newly expanded facility.
“USDA Rural Development is helping to improve the quality of life across rural Michigan,” said Turner. “This project also strengthened the economy by leveraging local financial resources and providing local construction jobs.”
The agency provided a $6,354,257 loan guarantee to Community Shores Bank to help finance the project through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The expansion allows Muskegon Family Care to consolidate services at a central location.
