New MEDC Funding Available – Infrastructure & Resiliency (IR) Grant Program

November 27, 2019

Time is of essence on this funding source due to a short timeline turnaround! 

On behalf of the Michigan Strategic Fund, the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) is accepting applications for new projects under the State of Michigan’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Infrastructure and Resiliency (IR) Program! If you’re a community listed on the CDBG low– and moderate–income community customer list with a project that will benefit your entire community, this could be an excellent opportunity for funding.

The grant request for traditional infrastructure is between $500,000 and $1,700,000, with up to an additional $300,000 made available to awardees for costs related to Resiliency/Green Infrastructure improvements identified in the IR application. The extension of existing utilities for future growth and/or transportation only projects will not be eligible. Entitlement communities are not eligible for IR funding.

The project will be required to be completed by December 31, 2021. If a project’s timing cannot accommodate this requirement, an application should not be submitted. This will be strictly enforced and extensions will not be allowed. Due to funding limitations, only one submission per community is allowed.

Certified Grant Administrators (CGAs) will be required. The associated costs are eligible for CDBG funding. Procurement of a CGA will occur after award announcement.

Applications are due February 14, 2020. If you need assistance submitting a competitive application, contact Prein&Newhof Senior Project Manager Jason Washler, PE at 616–364–8491.
