City, Douglas and Lyon projects among $3.7 million in rural development block grants | Carson City Nevada News

Gov. Steve Sisolak announced Thursday that $3,674,024 in community development block grant funds have been awarded to 17 projects in Carson City and rural Nevada.

“This year’s CDBG projects will benefit 17,625 Nevada residents in five counties, the City of Ely, the City of Fallon, the City of Fernley, the City of Wells and Carson City,” Governor Sisolak said. “Awards and projects range from $35,000 for the Ron Woods-Family Resiliency program in Carson City to $800,000 for a streets and sidewalks project in Lincoln County. »

Nevada counties and cities invested an additional $1,244,408 in matching funds for the projects.

Since 1982, when the state began administering the program, more than $95 million has been awarded to rural Nevada communities. The CDBG program enables local governments to undertake a wide range of activities aimed at creating suitable living environments, providing affordable housing and creating economic opportunities, primarily for low- and middle-income people. The US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) oversees the program, and the Rural Community Development Division of the Governor’s Office for Economic Development administers the program for the state of Nevada.
