Wisconsin’s local governments are encouraged to apply for one-time road improvement grants.
The Agricultural Road Improvement Program (ARIP) has money to repair and upgrade local roads that impede business because of frequent weight limits.
Jason Mugnaini with the Wisconsin Farm Bureau says farmers and loggers should encourage their towns to fill out the simple grant application. “With grants provided through this program, local governments will have the means to undertake the crucial repairs and reconstruction projects, reducing transportation costs and promoting the overall resilience of Wisconsin’s food supply chain.”
And he says farmers need to help their towns apply.
