SACRAMENTO — The Department of Housing and Community Development recently announced awards totaling more than $13.7 million in federal Community Development Block Grant funds for eligible Economic Development and Community Development in Amador, Calaveras, El Dorado, Nevada, Placer, Sutter and Yolo counties.

This award is part of $50 million awarded by the CDBG Federal Program to 42 cities and counties statewide. More than $14 million will also be made available for Economic Development Over-the-Counter awards over the coming fiscal year.

Among the recipients is the County of Calaveras which was awarded $600,000 for employment training, food banks and planning. El Dorado County received $1.61 million.

“These awards are an important element in strengthening our small California communities,” said HCD Acting Director Randall A. Deems. “HCD is proud to help cities and counties provide public services and improvements which will have a huge impact on the future of their residents.”

HCD administers the distribution of CDBG funds to smaller and rural communities from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. These awards will provide homebuyer assistance and rehabilitation of substandard housing, and fund public works projects such as waterline installations, water and sewage treatment system improvements, senior day care facilities, fire stations and medical clinics in smaller cities and rural communities that often lack access to other types of financial resources.
