The County of Milwaukee is inviting citizen comments on the Proposed Community Development Block Grant funding for 2011.
Milwaukee County will be receiving 2011 federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding totaling approximately $1, 800,000. The CDBG funding is to be shared between Milwaukee County and 16 participating municipalities. The municipal share will be allocated in accordance with inter-governmental Cooperation Council policy adopted for this purpose.

The Committee on Economic and Community Development is holding this public hearing on June 14, 2010 at 9:00 a.m. in Room 201-B of the Courthouse to obtain the views of County citizens on the general needs of the CDBG funds.
