Public infrastructure is getting a boost, as the Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity (DCEO) has announced the recipients of Community Development Block Grants (CDBG).
This funding will support essential water, sewer, and drainage system repairs, benefiting Illinois residents and improving overall quality of life. The grants, totaling $41 million across 32 communities, aim to ensure equitable access to clean water and modern utilities, particularly in underserved areas. 
Projects include storm sewer construction, waterline replacements, and water storage tank installations to address flooding and sewage management issues. 
The CDBG program, celebrating its 50th anniversary, has been instrumental in supporting infrastructure, economic development, and housing initiatives for vulnerable communities, with over $165 million awarded in the last seven years.
