  • Playing by the Rules

New Initiative - Building Public Service by Strengthening Relationship - Public services are needed in the North Miami community and strengthening the partnerships between providers and the City is essential. Therefore, during the year, the CDBG Administrator and Planning manager will be visiting all the nonprofit organizations receiving CDBG funds.

Public Facilities and Public Improvements - CDBG funds can be used for construction, reconstruction or rehabilitation of public facilities and improvements. The facilities must be opened to the general public and include libraries, public schools, firehouses and neighborhood centers. Public Improvements may include streets, sidewalks, parks, playgrounds, water and sewer lines, parking lots and aesthetic amenities on public property.

Special Economic Development with CDBG - Economic development encompasses the process, policies, and activities by which a community improves the long-term economic and social well-being of its people. The objective of economic development is a sustainable increase in living standards, including per capita income, education, health, and environmental protection. Economic development strategies offers government, the private and not-for-profit sectors, and local communities the opportunity to work together to improve the local economy. The Economic Development Manager and the CDBG Administrator have worked together on economic development projects, funded wholly or in part by the CDBG program.
