Public Facilities funds help support infrastructure and facility projects for communities. Examples of eligible projects include improvements, repairs, or expansions of streets, drainage systems, water and sewer systems, sidewalks, and community centers. Grants are limited to projects that, if implemented, meet a CDBG National Objective.
How to Apply
CDBG-PF funds are awarded through an annual competitive
process. Application materials and submission instructions should be carefully reviewed prior to applying for CDBG-PF funds.
For each Grant Application received on or before the Application Submission Deadline, DOA reviews, scores, & ranks the Applications based on a pre-approved list of scoring criteria. Successful Applications must meet a CDBG National Objective (in accordance with HUD program regulations). Applications that earn enough points in the review process will be awarded State CDBG-PF funds.
Communities with successful applications (that have met the threshold requirements for funding) are announced and each community receives an award letter which documents the next steps required to accept & execute a Grant Agreement (i.e. contract) with the State of Wisconsin.
Next Steps & Requirements
Community grant administrators will be required to attend implementation training.
