AMERICAN RECOVERY AND REINVESTMENT ACT
COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT PROGRAM
The program will provide funds to Michigan’s non-entitlement communities for Community Development Block Grant Recovery (CDBG-R) eligible projects that meet the national objective of benefiting low/mod income persons and other regulatory requirements.
Communities are invited to submit one (1) project that will have eligible job creation. Proposals may be submitted for a variety of projects which include: hard development costs associated with infrastructure activities that provide basic services to residents or activities that promote energy efficiency and conservation through rehabilitation or retrofitting of existing buildings.
No consideration will be given to the following projects: swimming pools, golf courses, zoos, aquariums , casinos or other gambling establishments, buildings for general conduct of government, political activities, purchase of equipment and operating and maintenance expenses.
There are no federal requirements for a local cash match or other type of funding match. However, preference will be given for projects that rely on other sources of funding. Projects with a completion deadline in 2010 will be scored favorably. Projects with a start date after April 30, 2011, will not be scored.
Grants will only be made directly to the qualifying community.
Proposals are DUE by June 1, 2010 at 5:00 p.m. Late entries will not be accepted.
