The City of Tiffin intends to apply to the Ohio Development Services Agency for funding under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Small Cities Program, a federally funded program administered by the state. The City of Tiffin is eligible for approximately $150,000 for Fiscal Years 2018-2019 CDBG funding, provided the City of Tiffin meets applicable funding requirements.
The first of two (or more) public hearings will be held on April 24, 2018 at 4 p.m. at the SIEDC office, 19 W. Market St., Suite C, in Tiffin to provide citizens with pertinent information about the CDBG program requirements. The CDBG program can fund a broad range of activities including economic development projects, street, water supply, drainage and sanitary sewer improvements, park acquisition and improvements, demolition of unsafe structures, rehabilitation of housing, neighborhood facilities, and downtown revitalization. The activities must be designed to primarily benefit low and moderate income (LMI) persons or aid in the prevention or elimination of slum and blight.
Citizens are encouraged to attend the public meetings, or submit an idea application via mail, email or fax, to provide input on the city’s CDBG program.
