State Senator John Sullivan, 47th Legislative District
For Immediate Release: October 16, 2012
QUINCY, IL – State Senator John Sullivan (D-Rushville) participated today in a municipal funding workshop, where he spoke about local governments' options for securing funding for infrastructure and economic development projects. Sullivan gave pointers on the grant application process and answered questions.
"Whether it's replacing an aging sewer system or developing a park, towns rely on outside funding to improve quality of life without raising taxes on property owners," Sullivan said. "As a state senator, I've always valued the opportunity to help local governments build for the future while creating good jobs now."
The 2012 Funders Forum, hosted in Quincy by Klingner & Associates, brought together representatives of communities throughout western Illinois. Participants heard from lawmakers, grant-writing experts and personnel from the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
