The CDBG program is a federally funded, competitive grant program designed to help small cities and towns meet a broad range of community development needs.
Milledgeville was one of 59 Georgia communities awarded this year.
“We have another grant that we’re working on and we’re gonna assess some more areas. This area also had new meters put in about two years ago,” says Baldwin County Commissioner Emily Davis.
The program allows cities and counties to direct federal funding to address a critical community need.
