From the Director, August 2012 - HUD Approves $4.5 million for Windham County
We asked Josh Hanford, Director of the Vermont Community Development Program, how much of the $4.5 million is allocated to direct grants through the revised CDBG-DR action plan, and how much would be available to the region through competitive grant programs. Under the revised action plan, Windham County will receive up to $1,171,629 in direct grants to provide the 25 percent match required under the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program for the buyout of properties located in floodplains. Windham County will also receive direct grants of up to $339,864 for Housing Recovery Activity. This means that up to $2,988,506 will be available to Windham County for competitive grants. The revised action plan and a chart showing the breakdown of funds available to Windham County are available on the WRC website here.
