JACINTO CITY – Friday July 22, 2016 at City Hall, Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee announced two important USDA Rural Development Grants for Jacinto City. Both the Fire Department and the Police Department will benefit from these grants.

Congresswoman Lee announced an historical moment in the history of the city. She said the two federal grants totaling $102,000 in funds for the Police and Fire Departments represent the first ever rural grant in the mostly urban 18th Congressional District. The 18th District is a very diverse and large geographic area which includes areas not lying in Houston’s city limits. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has many programs that Jacinto City officials weren’t aware they qualify for, Lee continued.

Congresswoman Lee’s office facilitated the important meetings between Jacinto City officials and officials of the USDA which brought forth funding for the two departments.

USDA Rural Development Texas State Director Paco Valentin thanked Congresswoman Lee for her proactive role in securing the much needed funds to ensure improved public safety and emergency services become a reality for the city.

The Fire Department will receive $90,000 in grant funds towards purchasing a Type I Emergency Medical Service (EMS) Mobile Intensive Care Unit (MICU) capable of delivering Medical Intensive and Critical Levels of care. Congresswoman Lee said, “this new ambulance will provide Jacinto City with some of the tools necessary and required to provide quality emergency preparedness. A prepared community is a strong resilient community.”
