Governor Deal announces $37.7 million in community development awards to 74 Georgia communities

Governor Nathan Deal has announced that 74 Georgia communities will receive a total of $37.7 million in assistance to grow their local economies. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded the funding to Georgia’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, which is administered by the Department of Community Affairs (DCA).

Sixty-eight Georgia communities will receive $33.3 million in State CDBG funds for infrastructure improvements, neighborhood revitalization and centers that will serve Georgia’s neediest citizens. In addition, $4.3 million in CDBG Employment Incentive Program (EIP) and Redevelopment Fund (RDF) funding was recently awarded to 11 Georgia communities.  The funding is targeted to invest in redevelopment and economic development projects that are creating 511 jobs across the state and will provide leverage for $86.7 million in private investment.

For 2016, 50 communities are proposing water or sewer projects, 27 communities are proposing street and drainage projects, 13 communities are proposing building projects in order to benefit clients receiving specialized services, 8 communities are proposing multi-infrastructure improvements (usually a combination of water or sewer and street and drainage) and 13 communities are proposing housing or multi-activity projects (includes housing).
