MADISON – Gov. Jim Doyle today announced that the Village of Cadott, Chippewa County, will receive a Community Development Block Grant Public Facilities (CDBG-PF) grant totaling $150,000 to make public facilities improvements.

“My Grow Wisconsin plan calls for investing in our infrastructure to improve the quality of life for all Wisconsin residents,” said Gov. Doyle.

The village will repair its washed-out dike, install storm sewer, curb and gutter, and replace existing water mains. The project is in response to damage created by yearly flooding since 2000. The total project cost is $1.1 million.

Commerce has administered the federally funded CDBG-PF Program since 1982. These grants play an important role in helping communities finance a wide range of projects designed to enhance the economic vitality of the community through the expansion of the tax base, job creation, and increased private investment in downtowns. Grants are awarded to projects that will primarily benefit low- and moderate-income residents. For further information on the CDBG-PF Program contact James Frymark, Commerce, at 608/266-2742.
