On March 7, 2019, the County conducted the first public hearing to inform citizens about this grant program, how it may be used, what activities are eligible, and other program requirements.

In the event that any of the above projects are not able to be implemented in the time allowed, as a secondary (back-up) project, a sidewalk replacement project will be undertaken in the Village of Savannah. If grant funding allocations are not approved due to the federal budget, no projects will be undertaken.

If funding is available, the County plans to apply for the following Competitive Set-Aside funding: Neighborhood Revitalization Grant- Village of Hayesville- $750,000
