Citizen input wanted for Community Development Block Grant Applications

The City of Caribou is seeking citizen input on Community Development Block Grant applications. The City of Caribou is planning on submitting letters of intent for CDBG grant applications in the areas of Economic Development, Micro-Enterprise Assistance, Housing Assistance, and Workforce Development. Information on applicable projects and conditions are available through the Maine Department of Economic and Community Development Office of Community Development at www.meocd.org.

Citizens interested in submitting ideas to the Community Development Advisory Committee can do so through via email by contacting Tony Mazzucco, Assistant City Manager/CDBG program administrator at tmazzucco@cariboumaine.org. Citizens interested in joining the Community Development Advisory Committee, which in Caribou also serves as the Community Revitalization Committee, should contact Austin Bleess, City Manager, at citymanager@cariboumaine.org or by calling 493-3324 ext 230.

The City of Caribou Community Development Advisory Committee will hold a meeting on Tuesday, February 25th, 2014 at 6:30pm to review proposals and vote on which proposals the City will submit letters of intent for. All meetings are open to the public and citizen input is highly desired.

The City of Caribou is looking forward to submitting Public Infrastructure and Downtown Revitalization CDBG grant applications in 2015 and ideas for submissions in those categories will be accepted as well.
