The total amount of Disaster Recovery funds to be requested is $440,000.00. The amount of Disaster Recovery funds proposed to be used for activities that will benefit low and moderate-income persons is $233,200.00. The Applicant also proposes to expend an estimated $25,000.00 in non-CDBG funds on the project. These non-CDBG funds will be derived from the following sources: $25,000.00 from the Brown County CEDIT Fund.

The Brown County Commissioners will hold a public hearing on April 13, 2010 at 6:30 p.m. (local time) at the Brown County Community Church located at 2360 Main Street, Helmsburg, Indiana to provide interested parties an opportunity to express their views on the proposed federally funded CDBG Disaster Recovery storm water project.
