MSA announced today the successful procurement of over $6 million in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding for 13 clients in the state of Wisconsin. All 13 of MSA’s grant applications were wholly funded, resulting in the capture of 40 percent of the total funding awarded statewide. Grants are allocated by the Department of Administration’s (DOA) Division of Energy, Housing and Community Resources, with recipients selected through a competitive bidding process.
An announcement by Governor Scott Walker earlier in the month revealed a total of $15 million in awards granted to 33 municipalities for community and infrastructure improvements. These public facility grants will help Wisconsin communities with a variety of projects including water, sewer and street infrastructure, public libraries, community centers, improvements to public buildings, fire station, EMS facilities and more.
“We are very excited for the communities on the governor’s list of recipients for the 2018 CDBG Public Facility Grants,” commented Mary Wagner, team leader and Funding practice lead at MSA. “These grants provide much-needed funds for critical projects within these communities and we look forward to making these projects vital realities with grant administration and construction support moving forward.”
MSA client communities benefitting from the receipt of these public facility grants include the following: Augusta, Bangor, Boyceville, Brodhead, Clintonville, Colby, Crandon, Gilman, Oakfield, Rothschild, Somerset, Sumpter-Bluffview and Wautoma.
MSA is honored to assist communities with their funding needs, helping to find and acquire resources from both public and private sources in order to help turn visions into reality. We congratulate all 33 of the successfully-funded communities. This is a huge win for small municipalities and a triumph for the long-term wellbeing of Wisconsin.
