2020 CDBG Grant Award Announcement

2020 Community Development Block Grant-Public Facilities

 Recently, Governor Tony Evers announced more than $36 million in funding for 42 public infrastructure and facility projects across Wisconsin. The funding is awarded to local units of government as part of a competitive grant process for the 2020 Community Development Block Grants for Public Facilities (CDBG-PF) program.

“Investing in core infrastructure services ensures Wisconsinites can remain proud of the communities in which they live, work and raise families, as well as maintain a positive and healthy quality of life,” said Wisconsin Department of Administration (DOA) Secretary Brennan.

Administered through DOA’s Division of Energy, Housing and Community Resources, CDBG-PF grants are open to all units of general and local governments that do not receive CDBG awards directly through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). CDBG-PF grants have the programmatic goals of:

  • ensuring the affordability of basic services that enhance community vitality;
  • supporting the revitalization of established neighborhoods, downtown business districts, and blighted sites;
  • assisting with capital improvement projects that support previous planning efforts and are part of broader community development strategies;
  • improving the accessibility of public facilities; and
  • encouraging the use of energy-efficient design, retrofitting, and equipment, as well as projects that benefit bicyclists and pedestrians.

Proposed activities for project include water main, sewer main and storm sewer replacements, in addition to the street reconstruction for Keane (Richards to E Dead End), Weaver (Main to Kirby), Kirby (Weaver to Jarvis), Alley (200′ E of Main, Richards to Jarvis behind bank and post office) and Hughitt (Wells to S Dead End) Streets.

The Village of Ridgeway grant amount, and total project cost is listed below:
