Member Certification Form

Use of Funds and Justification: 

The funding would be used for the design and construction of a water treatment plant and a water distribution system. 

The project is an appropriate use of taxpayer funds because this project will ensure that residents have safe and adequate drinking water.  Alpha is a small, rural community that needs assistance with infrastructure costs to make this project feasible and affordable for its residents. As a result, funding for this infrastructure project will help maintain affordable housing costs, a critical need in rural America, while also supporting businesses in nearby Jackson, MN.
