The City of Shasta Lake has been awarded over $3.3 million in grant funds from the State of California Department of Housing and Community Development Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program for the engineering and construction (pavement overlay) for the City’s 2021 Street Rehabilitation project.
City staff applied for, and the City awarded, CDBG grant funds through the 2020 Notice of Funding Availability. These funds are federal pass through funds administered by the State of California Department of Housing and Community Development. The limits of the Project were restricted to eligible low- and moderate-income areas within the City using the following census tract and block group(s):
For the purpose of the 2020 CDBG Grant application, eligible areas were only areas that comprised of a 51% or more low-moderate income for the census area. While we understand there are other areas in the City with greater needs for street improvements, unfortunately the grant criteria restricts what areas we are able to apply for. The City anticipates applying for other areas as funding becomes available.
The estimated total construction cost for the project is $3.3 million, with the grant covering 99 percent of the project cost. The purpose of the project is to rehabilitate the existing pavement and improve safety for all users, including pedestrians, cars, and other modes of transportation.
