The Town of Milford has applied and was awarded a planning grant funded by the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs’ Small Cities Community Development Block Grant program through Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended. These funds are used for economic development, public facilities, and housing projects. The Town of Milford will hold a public hearing on Monday, June 13th at 7:00 PM at the Milford Community Building, 111 S. Main, Milford, IN 46542, to provide citizens an opportunity to express their views on federally assisted projects, utility issues and needs, and past utility projects.
As awarded, this grant of $90,000 will fund a master utility study for necessary improvements to the Town’s utility services and infrastructure in order to continue to provide excellent and affordable service. This grant and the associated master utility study will benefit the households of Milford. A 10% matching amount of $10,000.00 from the Town of Milford will be supplied for the project. Approximately 61.7% of the grant funds, $55,530.00, will be used to benefit low-to-moderate income individuals.
Interested citizens are invited to provide comments regarding these issues either at the public hearing or by prior written statement. Accommodations for individuals with disabilities or with limited English proficiency can be requested at the contact information below. This project will result in the displacement of no individuals or businesses. Information concerning the proposed project may be obtained from:
