Algoma residents can look forward to seeing some major improvements in the city in the next few years thanks to a $1 million Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). The City of Algoma was one of 25 small cities to receive the grant, according to a release by Governor Tony Evers on Monday. City of Algoma Administrator Jared Heyn describes the benefits the neighborhood near Perry Park will receive in 2022 and beyond.
Heyn says Algoma also received $700,000 earlier this year from a CDBG-CLOSE grant to invest in the project. He says the extensive application process to receive the grant included documentation of the need and financial resourcing required to complete the project. In all, over $22 million was awarded in the state for the Community Development Block Grant.
