Public Infrastructure Grant Program

Letters of Intent will be accepted for the 2018 and 2019 Program Years. The communities invited to submit applications in 2018 may potentially be funded in 2018, or 2019.

The Public Infrastructure Grant (PI) Program provides gap funding for local infrastructure activities, which are part of a community development strategy leading to future public and private investments.

  1. Eligible Activities: Eligible activities in the PI Program are construction, acquisition, reconstruction, installation, relocation assistance associated with public infrastructure, and public infrastructure limited to supporting construction of fully-funded affordable LMI housing; eligible planning activities necessary to complete the Project Development Phase.

  2. Exclusions: See Section 1H (1) (2).

  3. Match: All communities applying for PI funds must certify that they will provide a cash match of at least 25 percent of the total grant award. This match may consist of all non-CDBG loans, grants etc. contributed to the project.

  4. Program Activities: Applicants may apply for one or more activities within a specific activity group. Applicants cannot mix activities from different activity groups in an application.
