NASHVILLE, Tenn. – State Rep. Todd Warner, R-Chapel Hill, today announced a $208,826 grant for a community development project in Cornersville from the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development (TNECD).
Cornersville received a $208,826 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) for the construction of a new sidewalk along Highway 31, which will start on the west side of Highway 31, where the existing sidewalk ends, and continue to Cornersville Elementary School.
“This is a significant investment into Cornersville,” Warner said. “I’m proud of the people who worked hard in the application process and I thank them and TNECD for their work in this process. The sidewalk improvement project will provide a safe walkway for children and residents to use for years to come.”
TNECD approved $36.6 million in grants to 78 communities across the state for projects in categories including public health and safety, community infrastructure, community revitalization, water system improvements, and sewer system improvements.
The allocation of CDBG funds is based on priorities set through the public meeting process at the local community level. The CDBG program is funded through HUD and administered in Tennessee by the Department of Economic and Community Development.
State Rep. Todd Warner represents House District 92, which includes Marshall County and part of Williamson County.
