Blunt Announces $386,036 Community Development Block Grant for City of Clarksville


CLARKSVILLE, MO – December 18, 2008 – (RealEstateRama) — Gov. Matt Blunt today announced that the city of Clarksville has been approved for a $386,036 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) by the Missouri Department of Economic Development (DED). The grant will be utilized for a drainage system improvement project.

Clarksville’s storm water drainage system is poor at best and non-existent in other areas. Following a moderate rain, storm water rushes down city streets, into basements, crawl spaces and businesses. For long periods of time, stagnant water can also be found standing in lawns, creating a health hazard to citizens. The entire community will benefit from the proposed improvements.

The CDBG program, administered by the Missouri Department of Economic Development, provides grants and loan funds to cities with a population under 50,000 and counties under 200,000 to assist in a variety of public works and economic development projects.
