Nassau County is considering applying to the Florida Department of Economic Opportunities (DEO) for Deobligated and Unobligated Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds of $250,000. These funds must be used for one of the following purposes:
- To benefit low and moderate income persons;
- To aid in the prevention or elimination of slums or blight; or
- To meet other community development needs of recent origin having a particular urgency because existing conditions pose a serious and immediate threat to the health or welfare of the community and where other financial resources are not available to meet such needs.
The proposed project is continued de-snagging of fallen vegetation in the Thomas Creek drainage basins. A ten (10) day comment period will begin on, September 12, 2014. Contact Shane Whittier at (904) 491-7330 for a copy of the proposed application. Please submit comments to Shane Whittier at 96161 Nassau Place, Yulee, Florida 32097 by September 22, 2014.
