Two Grants Awarded Under CDBG Program


The Village of Villa Park has been awarded grant funding for two projects under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program. The first is the Harvard Avenue Water Main Project; the second is the Third Avenue Combined Sewer Separation Project. The award recommendation was made by the DuPage County Community Development Commission Executive Committee.

The Harvard Avenue Water Main Project consists of the replacement of the existing four-inch (4”) water main on North Harvard Avenue from Jefferson Park to Plymouth Street with new eight-inch (8”) ductile iron water main. The Third Avenue Combined Sewer Separation Project consists of the separation of the existing combined sewer main on North Third Avenue from Holly Court to Division Street. Construction of the Harvard Avenue Project could begin as early as this year. Construction of the Third Avenue Project would not begin until 2021 at the earliest.

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program, which is provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and administered locally by the DuPage County Community Development Commission, is expected to provide funding of up to seventy-five percent or $400,000 toward each project. The Village plans to move forward with engineering design of the two projects in the very near future.
