Rep. Harris Announces Grant to Salisbury to Study Wicomico Port
WASHINGTON, DC: On Tuesday, December 4, the Economic Development Administration (EDA) awarded the City of Salisbury a $37,500 grant to help fund an assessment of a multi-user port along the Wicomico River. The EDA is an agency in the United States Department of Commerce, and this investment funds a port feasibility study to assess the physical and economic viability of a multi-user port along the Wicomico River. EDA grants are awarded through a competitive process based upon the application’s merit, the applicant’s eligibility, and the availability of funds.
Congressman Andy Harris made the following statement regarding the EDA grant:
“I support the federal grant awarded to the City of Salisbury that will go toward an assessment of a multi-user port along the Wicomico River. This port will provide jobs along the Wicomico River and enhance commerce as offload services and local industry exporters will be able to use the port for local business in Maryland’s First District.”
