Community Development Block Grant Applications Due
Water and Wastewater Engineering. This program funds water and
wastewater "phased" projects that require more than one year to complete.
Phase I of the program covers only engineering costs plus an appropriate
amount of administration. Once the applicant receives their construction
permit, the Oklahoma Department of Commerce will issue an award for
construction and the second phase of the project will begin.
Water-Wastewater Construction. This program is for applicants that are
ready to begin project construction. Eligible applicants that provide
documentation of final plans and specifications or a construction permit
secured through the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality
(ODEQ) may apply under this category. CDBG funds may only be utilized for
construction, inspection and administration costs. Engineering costs are
prohibited. The national objective of the water-wastewater construction
program is to provide benefit to low and moderate income persons.
Maximum grant amount is $350,000.
Please call ASCOG community and economic development staff soonest for
assistance in completing these (or any other) grant applications.
