— Orange County Executive Steven Neuhaus has announced the 2019 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Awards, providing more than $1 million across 18 projects, benefiting 17 municipalities.

These awards will enable communities to address local needs by pursuing a variety of infrastructure, ADA accessibility and community development projects.

“The county continues to partner with municipalities to ensure they can access the most effective resources, including federal grant programs,” Neuhaus said in the press release announcing the awards. “Through our Office of Community Development, we develop these meaningful partnerships and pursue high-impact projects that will improve the lives of Orange County residents. These CDBG grants will help committed local leaders across the county build better roads, sewer and water systems, and ensure access to public facilities for everyone.”

The Community Development Block Grant funds are allocated annually to Orange County through the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and administered by the Orange County Office of Community Development.

The program enables states and local governments to undertake a wide variety of activities intended to create suitable living environments and generate economic opportunities principally for people with low to moderate income.
