Infrastructure improvements to continue through CDBG opportunities

     Tennessee Governor Bill Lee and Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe recently approved $28.5 million in Community Development Block Grants, which will assist communities with infrastructure improvements, housing rehabilitations, and health and safety initiatives.

     The allocation of CDBG funds is based on priorities set through the public meeting process at the local community level. The CDBG program is funded through HUD and administered in Tennessee by the Department of Economic and Community Development. Funds are available for water and sewer improvements and new extensions, housing rehabilitation, and health and safety projects.
