The City of Aberdeen has been awarded a $350,000 grant for its wastewater facilities improvement project.
Idaho Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter announced the grant on Wednesday, April 23, along with Idaho Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) for 13 other Idaho communities to address public infrastructure, senior and community centers and economic development projects.
“It’s amazing to see all the growth and development that communities across Idaho are pursuing, and the State of Idaho is pleased to be a partner in helping them improve the infrastructure necessary to help expand economic opportunities and serve our citizens,” Otter said.
All CDBG grant awards are reviewed and recommended by the Idaho Economic Advisory Council, and final approval is granted by the governor.
The Idaho CDBG program supports Idaho cities and counties with development of necessary public infrastructure. The grant program, funded through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, is used to construct projects that benefit low- and moderate-income persons, help prevent or eliminate slum and blight conditions, or solve catastrophic health and safety threats in local areas.
