The Washington County Board of Commissioners approved the annual 2012 federal Community Development Block Grant and Homes Investment Partnership Program (HOME) action plan at its meeting May 1. Funding for Jergens Estates in Forest Lake is included for 2012. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development requires an annual action plan to be submitted to its agency. The 2010-2014 plan established the strategies and funding priorities for the CDBG and HOME programs from July 1, 2010, through June 30, 2015. Annual grant funds for CDBG and HOME programs are used to fund high and medium priority activities identified in the Consolidated Plan. The Jergens Estates senior housing project will receive $115,356 in CDBG funding for phase three of its ongoing improvements.
