Public Notice - Community Development Block Grant

PUBLIC NOTICE

On or about March 19, 2010, the Brown County Commissioners intends to apply to the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA) for a grant from the Departments Community Focus Fund of the State Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. This program is funded by Title I of the federal Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended. These funds are to be used for a community development project that will include the following activities: The construction of a new EMS facility for Brown County. The total amount of CDBG funds to be requested is $500,000.00. The amount of CDBG funds proposed to be used for activities that will benefit low and moderate-income persons is $301,750.00. The Applicant also proposes to expend an estimated $64,676.00 in non-CDBG funds on the project. These non-CDBG funds will be derived from the following sources: $50,000 from the County's CAGIT Public Safety Fund; $1,000 from the Town of Nashville; and $13,676 from the Brown County Community Foundation.

The Brown County Commissioners will hold a public hearing on March 16, 2010, at 6:30 p.m. (local time) at the Brown County Annex Building (large meeting room on the 2nd floor), 201 N. Locust Lane, Nashville, Indiana to provide interested parties an opportunity to express their views on the proposed federally funded CDBG project.
