Suwannee County, Florida is considering applying to the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) for a FFY 2021-2022 Small Cities Community Development Block Grant (CDBG).  If not funded under the initial FFY 2021-22 combined cycle, this notice and public hearing will be used for a subsequent FFY 2022 cycle. The County is eligible to apply for up to Seven Hundred Fifty Thousand Dollars ($750,000.00) in the neighborhood revitalization, commercial revitalization, and housing rehabilitation categories and up to one million five hundred thousand dollars ($1,500,000.00) in the economic development category.  Construction activities funded through the CDBG program must meet one of the following National Objectives:

 

  1. To benefit low and moderate income persons;
  2. To aid in the prevention or elimination of slums or blight; or
  3. To meet other community development needs of recent origin having a particular urgency because existing conditions pose a serious and immediate threat to the health or welfare of the community and where other financial resources are not available to meet such needs.

 

The categories of activities for which these funds may be used are in the areas of housing, neighborhood revitalization, commercial revitalization or economic development and include such improvement activities as acquisition of real property, loans to private-for-profit businesses, purchase of machinery and equipment, construction of infrastructure, rehabilitation of houses and commercial buildings and energy conservation.  Additional information regarding the range of activities that may be undertaken will be provided at the public hearing.  For each activity that is proposed, at least 70% of the funds must benefit low- and moderate-income persons.

 

In developing an application for submission to DEO, Suwannee County must plan to minimize displacement of persons as a result of planned CDBG activities.  In addition, Suwannee County is required to develop a plan to assist displaced persons.

 

A public hearing to receive citizen views concerning the community’s economic and community development needs will be held at the Suwannee County Judicial Annex Building, located at 218 Parshley Street Southwest, Live Oak, FL. 32064, on Wednesday, June 22, 2022, at 9:30 A.M., or as soon thereafter as possible.  For information concerning the public hearing contact Mr. Shannon Roberts, Content Admin/Assistant, at the Suwannee County Administrative Building located at 13150 80th Terrace, Live Oak, Florida 32060, by telephone at 386-590-0732 or by email at [email protected]UNTYFL.GOV.
