The Community Block Grant Program provides grants to local government organizations (Tribal or City government) to fund development of projects that promote sustainable community and regional economic development. The BBEDC Board determines the level of funding available to communities and whether the community can offer fuel/electric assistance to eligible low-income residents, M&O for community-owned ice machines and/or toher community facilities with the funding on an annual basis. Policies and guidelines are available from BBEDC. The amount budgeted for 2016 is $500,000 per community. The application period is January 1, 2017- December 31, 2017.
