Governor Deal announces more than $37.5 million in community development awards

Governor Nathan Deal has announced that 59 Georgia communities will receive 61 community development awards totaling $37.55 million in federal assistance to help grow their local economies. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded the funding to Georgia’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, which is administered by the Georgia Department of Community Affairs (DCA). The annual grants are one of DCA’s most recognized, competitive and vital programs, maximizing the opportunities offered by HUD’s CDBG program and helping Georgia remain the nation’s top state for business. 

Of the 59 communities receiving grants, 51 will receive $32.7 million in CDBG funds for infrastructure improvements, neighborhood revitalization and centers to serve citizens in need. Also, $4.8 million in CDBG Employment Incentive Program (EIP) and Redevelopment Fund (RDF) awards have been presented to 10 Georgia communities to invest in redevelopment and economic development projects that are creating 446 jobs and generating $117 million in private investment.
