Governor Scott Walker today awarded almost $15 million to 33 Wisconsin municipalities for local infrastructure and community projects through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Public Facility and Planning Funds. 

The public facility grants will help Wisconsin communities improve streets, water systems, and construct new community buildings. Grants for planning will help rebuild and revitalize communities in Wisconsin through planned public infrastructure projects. 

“We are going to help expand public libraries, improve local streets, build a new senior center, a new fire station, and more,” Governor Walker said. “This program is one tool we can use to help us maintain our commitment to local communities across Wisconsin. Congratulations to the 33 communities that were awarded these funds.”

DOA's Division of Energy, Housing, and Community Resources (DEHCR) awards these funds to local governments annually through a competitive process. The funding for these awards comes from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
