CENTURIA, WI (WTAQ) - A grant from the U.S. Agriculture Department will help build a new fire station in northwest Wisconsin.

The Polk-Burnett rural electric cooperative of Centuria was given $300,000 by the USDA’s Rural Development agency to build a new station for a firefighting association that covers six towns.

It’s part of a $12 million package designed to create new job opportunities in rural states.

Seventeen states are sharing the new funds. Two groups in Missouri each received loans of $1 million each to create revolving loan funds for small businesses.
