Funding Alert: Hundreds of Millions Available for Community and Economic Development Projects

Don’t miss out – the deadline to submit a CFA for your economic and community development projects is around the corner.

  • Sewer System Improvements;
  • Special District Creation and Consolidation;
  • Stormshed and Outfall Mapping;
  • Land Acquisition for Water Source Protection;
  • Salt Shed Design and Construction;
  • Sidewalk Improvements;
  • Development, Conversion, or Expansion of Industrial or Manufacturing Facilities;

  • Facade Improvements;
  • Micro-enterprise Initiatives;
  • Development and Improvement of Visitor Centers, Concert Venues, and Other Tourist Attractions;
  • Waterfront Revitalization;
  • Bike and Pedestrian Trail Expansion or Improvement;
