Jenean Hampton today joined Department for Local Government (DLG) Commissioner Sandy Dunahoo in a Capitol rotunda ceremony to announce over $5.7 million in Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) for 13 new projects in Kentucky. These grants impact multiple regions and counties across the Commonwealth.

Each project is designed to aid critical infrastructure needs across the Commonwealth, such as water safety, public facilities and local health resources," said Gov. Bevin. "These block grants will not only have a significant impact on improving quality of life for Kentuckians, but will create economic opportunity and jobs as well.

"These grants have created wonderful opportunities for communities across the Commonwealth in terms of economic development, tourism, education, the environment, and more."
