CARSON CITY – Another round of federal funding, this time in the form of Community Development Block Grants, will pump into 16 rural Nevada communities. A total of $3,273,974 CDBG funding administered by the Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development will be dispersed to 16 communities in the state.
This year’s CDBG funding brings the state’s total from the program to more than $95 million dispersed since 1982. Such grants enable local governments to undertake a wide range of activities intended to create suitable living environments, provide decent affordable housing, and create economic opportunities, primarily for persons of low and moderate income.
