Eight southern Illinois communities are receiving Community Development Block Grants for Public Infrastructure projects.

The projects include repairs to water, sewer, and drainage infrastructure to enhance safety and quality of life.

The grants range from $700,000 dollars to $1.5 million.

They are going to Cairo, Carmi, Centralia, Cobden, Golconda, Hutsonville, Norris City and Sparta.

Preference was given to projects located in underserved areas, opportunity zones, and those which proposed a non-state matching component to drive the maximum investment to the area.
