Public Notice


Amendment to the Shelby County Department of Housing
Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) Program


Certified as an urban county Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) entitlement community by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Shelby County is proposing the following amendments to its 2010 CDBG Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) Program. This amendment is being made in order to fully utilize CDBG-DR funds for the long-term disaster recovery efforts in Shelby County, Tennessee.
  1. Shelby County will cancel Activity SRRCBS-01-CT202 (Shelby Road/Royster Creek Bank Side Project) budgeted at $55,000.00 and SRRCDS-01-CT202 (Shelby Road/Royster Creek Ditch Side) budget at $48,274.75. These funds will be redirected to the Activity 4.001 (Emergency Relief Pumping Station) budgeted at $1,000,000.00 and Activity 5.001 (Upper Newport Drainage Channel Repair/Improvements) budgeted at $247,270.00. The current funding for both of these projects is $1,247,270.00. Both Activity 4.001 and 5.001 are linked together as a long-term recovery effort directly associated with the 2010 Disaster Declaration for Shelby County. This represents a total of $103,274.75 from the cancellation of Activities SRRCBS-01-CT202 and SRRCDS-01-CT202 which will be redirected to Activities 4.001 and 5.001.
  2. Shelby County will redirect $104,368.00 from the Infrastructure Restoration and Recovery Pool to Activities 4.001 and 5.001 (Emergency Relief Pumping Station and Upper Newport Drainage Channel Repair/Improvements). This redirection of funds is the result of all other activities budgeted under the Infrastructure Restoration and Recovery Pool having been completed as outlined in the Disaster Plan. These funds represent the balance of funds remaining in the pool now that all activities are complete.
As a result of this amendment, total funds available for Activity 4.001 (Emergency Relief Pumping Station) and Activity 5.001 (Upper Newport Drainage Channel Repair/Improvements) will increase from $1,247,270.00 to $1,454,912.00 (an increase of 17%). This amendment will allow these two large interconnected recovery efforts to be completed and will fully utilize disaster grant funds for recovery efforts in the City of Millington.

Public comments on this amendment will be accepted through March 23, 2015. Comments may be made in writing to Scott Walkup at Shelby County Department of Housing, 1075 Mullins Station Road, Memphis, Tennessee 38134; by calling Mr. Walkup at 901-222-7610; or by email.
