Mangano Awards Grant To The Village Of Bayville For Residential Rehabilitation
Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano today announced that the County has awarded a $20,000 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) to the Village of Bayville for residential rehabilitation, in order to maintain the stock of affordable housing by the provision of loans and/or grants to low and moderate income homeowners to eliminate code violations and make other needed improvements to their homes.
“It is important that we continue to do all we can to help provide our residents with affordable housing,” stated County Executive Mangano. “The CDBG Program is a great example of federal, county and local governments working together to make housing readily available to the hard working residents of Nassau County during these difficult economic times.”
“This marks the 37th year that the Village of Bayville has participated in the community development block grant program,” said Village of Bayville Mayor Douglas Watson. “Over the years the program has enabled applicants of certain income levels to make crucial repairs and improvements to their homes. The Village is proud to be able to continue topartner with Nassau County in this important program.”
The CDBG Program is a Federal entitlement program that provides communities with resources to address a wide range of unique community development needs. CDBG funds can be used for various activities related to housing, economic development, commercial revitalization, public services, infrastructure and public facilities. The Nassau County Office of Community Development annually issues a Notice of Funding Availability and accepts applications from member municipalities and other eligible applicants for CDBG grant funded activities.
