BOISE, Idaho (May 13, 2022) — Governor Brad Little announced 18 Idaho Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and one Rural Community Investment Fund (RCIF) awards will be distributed across Idaho, benefitting communities through the improvement of public infrastructure.

“We’ve made significant investments in infrastructure through my Leading Idaho plan, and the many other projects supported by these important grants further enable us to keep up with growth and create opportunity and enhance quality of life for Idahoans across our state. I appreciate all of the communities receiving an award as well as Idaho Commerce for supporting these projects that help Idaho continue to thrive,” Governor Little said.

“The awarded projects will assist Idaho communities in improving their infrastructure, attracting new businesses, and better serving their citizens,” Idaho Commerce Director Tom Kealey said. “These projects will bring growth and development across the state. The Idaho Commerce team is grateful to partner with these communities and support these meaningful projects.”

All grant awards are reviewed and recommended by the Economic Advisory Council (EAC), and final approval is granted by the Governor. The cities and counties receiving CDBG and RCIF grants are:
