(Public Notice Greek)

The City of Sebring anticipates applying for Round Two of the Rebuild Florida General Infrastructure Program (GIP) funding provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to support long-term mitigation efforts by assisting the State of Florida and its local governments in minimizing or eliminating the risks and reducing losses from future disasters. This program is being administered by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) thru the Community Development Block Grant – Mitigation (CDBG-MIT) Program. A total of four hundred seventy-five million dollars ($475,000,000.00) in funding has been allocated by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) for the Rebuild Florida General Infrastructure Program.  The funding will be allocated through three separate funding cycles which will be held over a three-year period with the second funding cycle, to have applications due in to DEO on or before September 17, 2021.  The amount of funding available in the second GIP application cycle is one hundred seventy-five million dollars ($175,000,000.00). The minimum allowable grant request is two million dollars ($2,000,000.00). Eligible types of projects are those that demonstrate increased community resiliency. Examples of some of the types of projects encouraged by DEO are as follows:

  •  Restoration of critical infrastructure (such as water and sewer facilities, streets, removal of debris, drainage, bridges, etc.). 
  • Renourishment of protective coastal dune systems and state beaches. 
  • Building or fortifying buildings that are essential to the health, safety and welfare of a community (this can include police stations, fire stations, parks and recreational centers, community and senior centers, hospitals, clinics, schools and educational facilities, other public properties). 
  • Rehabilitation or construction of stormwater management systems. 
  • Improvements to drainage facilities. 
  • Reconstruction of lift stations and sewage treatment plants. 
  • Road repair and improvement and bridge strengthening. 

The City of Sebring anticipates submitting three applications for a total of twenty-six million, twenty-one thousand one hundred and seventy dollars ($26,021,170.00) in funding through Round Two of the CDBG-GIP General Infrastructure Program.

Activities that are typically eligible for funding under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program as well as specific additional activities as outlined in the State of Florida CDBG-MIT Action Plan for the program are eligible projects if no other funding is available to meet the need. Applications are due in DEO no later than September 17, 2021.

The City of Sebring anticipates submitting three (3) separate applications for funding for mitigation of Sanitary Sewer, Fire Protection, and Storm Drainage.   The project synopsis and budgets for the three (3) applications being submitted are as follows:

Sanitary Sewer Collection System Mitigation Project: The City’s wastewater collection system experiences significant infiltration & Inflow (I & I), which causes significant problems throughout the collection system and at the City’s Wastewater Treatment Facility (WWTF). During significant storm events, a significant amount of stormwater enters into the existing terracotta clay pipe wastewater collection system (much of which is over 100 years old) through damaged pipe and degraded brick manholes.
