CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The City of Cheyenne is hoping to net up to $900,000 in federal grant funds for a “critically needed flood control” project at East Dell Range Boulevard and Van Buren Avenue.
On Monday, the City Council signed off on a resolution supporting the city’s application for Water and Sewer American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 Grant program funds. The grant is scored on a point system, and the resolution will help to maximize the competitiveness of the city’s application, a memo from city staff states.
“The project is estimated to cost up to $2 [million] and the City Engineer anticipates using up to 50% match funds from the 5th Penny Tax fund,” the memo states.
According to the resolution, the city would chip in an additional $900,000 in matching funds from the 5th Penny Sales Tax. A local match is a grant program requirement.
