Grants to Wyoming counties and municipalities for economic and community development. Applicants must consult with Fund staff and provide a copy of the application prior to submission. Funding is intended for activities that relate to handicapped accessibility, community facilities, public infrastructure, economic infrastructure, downtown development, and housing facility programs. Projects that indicate financial support from other sources will be given preference over those that have no other source of financing.
Wyoming is given broad authority to design and structure a program to meet local community and economic development needs. However, any project funded with CDBG funds must meet one of three U.S. Housing and Urban Development-imposed national objectives:
- Benefit to low- and moderate-income families
- Elimination of slums and blight
- Projects that meet an urgent community development need that pose a serious and immediate threat to the health or welfare of the community.
- Suitable Living Environment: Activities that benefit communities, families, and individuals by addressing issues in their living environment
- Decent Housing: Housing activities that meet individual family or community needs; should not be used for activities where housing is an element of a larger effort
- Economic Opportunity: Activities related to economic development, commercial revitalization, and job creation.
- Availability/Accessibility: Activities that make services, infrastructure, housing and shelter available and accessible. Note that accessibility does not only refer to physical barriers.
- Affordability: Activities that provide affordability in a variety of ways. It can include creation or maintenance of affordable housing, basic infrastructure hookups, or services such as transportation or daycare.
- Sustainability: Activities that promote livable or viable communities and neighborhoods by providing services or by reviving slums or blighted areas.
