Chipley receives $440K grant for infrastructure improvements

“Ultimately, this will be about a $5.9 million project, and the (NWFWD) grant won’t fund everything we’re wanting to do,” he explained. “We’ve also applied for a $1.5 million Community Block Issue Request (CBIR) grant and plan to just phase the project out and do what we can.”

The next step for the project is for the city to advertise for planners, engineers and designers who can help develop a strategy.

“It could be about five years worth of work, but we hope to go to work on it by the end of the year,” he said.
