Shelby County Approved for Development Grant
SHELBYVILLE - Shelby County has been approved for a $164,500 grant under the Community Development Block Grant program.
The CDBG program is administered by the Missouri Department of Economic Development and is part of the $1.9 million funding awarded through the 2011 Other Public Needs Competition.
County officials will use the grant to replace two bridges within the county.
The CDBG program provides grants and loan funds to cities with a population under 50,000 and counties under 200,000 to assist in public works and economic development projects.
The "other public needs" category allows applicants to submit projects that do not fit under existing categories.
