The CDBG Public Facility Program provides grant funds to local units of government for a variety of public improvement projects (e.g., water or sewer facilities, storm drainage, public buildings, street reconstruction, etc.) that benefit low and moderate income families and areas. Special priority is given to water and sanitary sewer projects that eliminate existing health and safety hazards.
The Mississippi Development Authority (MDA) recently conducted site visits for potential CDBG Public Facilities projects that CMPDD assisted in preparing and submitting the applications. A site visit does not guarantee approval; however, it is an important step toward approval of the CDBG grant. Listed below are the proposed projects that ranked high enough to be eligible for potential funding.
