Evans County has been awarded a $500,000 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) provided through the Georgia Dept. of Community Affairs. The funds are earmarked for road improvement projects in La Casa.
Commissioners received the grant award during a Dept. of Community Affairs award ceremony held Friday, Sept. 5, in Savannah. “It’s very hard to get these grants. There were so many applicants, but only five percent receive awards and Evans County received one,” said Casey Burkhalter, county administrator.
“This is a big deal. Any time you get a half a million dollar grant it’s a big deal,” agreed Neal Hammack, commission chairman.
