GOED rolling out new CDBG program

The GOED is pleased to announce the details for the Bulldoze, Build, and Beautify (BBB) activity under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. GOED has set aside $1 million of its FY 2017 CDBG allocation to support this activity.

“We’re excited to launch this program after a lot of hard work and planning,” said Commissioner Scott Stern, GOED. “For communities to determine eligibility, and to address blighted properties in and understand the application process and timeline, we invite you to please review the eligibility requirements carefully. Interested applicants can also talk to regional planning districts for support and answer to questions as you prepare your materials.”

All interested communities should work through their regional Planning District for support in completing the application process described below, as well as for the administration of awards.

Interested cities or counties should submit an “Intent to Apply” package to GOED through their regional planning district, including the basic information described in the Intent to Apply Questionnaire and any supporting documentation by Friday, Aug. 18. Any applicants who miss that deadline may apply again beginning on Monday, Aug. 28.
