The estimated total cost of the project is $3,861,600.00 with $3,731,600.00 in HUD funds, $125,000 in Rural Infrastructure Funds, and $5,000 from local funds for permitting fees; DEO agreement #MT143.

RELEASE OF FUNDS
The City of Marianna certifies to the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity and HUD that William Long in his capacity as City Manager consents to accept the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts if an action is brought to enforce responsibilities in relation to the environmental review process and that these responsibilities have been satisfied. The State’s approval of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and related laws and authorities and allows the City of Marianna to use the CDBG funds.
OBJECTIONS TO
RELEASE OF FUNDS
DEO will accept objections to its release of funds and the City of Marianna certification for a period of fifteen days following the anticipated submission date or its actual receipt of the request (whichever is later) only if they are on one of the following bases: (a) the certification was not executed by the Certifying Officer of the City of Marianna; (b) the City of Marianna has omitted a step or failed to make a decision or finding required by HUD regulations at 24 CFR part 58; (c) the grant recipient has committed funds or incurred costs not authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 before approval of a release of funds by the State; or (d) another Federal agency acting pursuant to 40 CFR Part 1504 has submitted a written finding that the project is unsatisfactory from the standpoint of environmental quality. Objections must be prepared and submitted in accordance with the required procedures at 24 CFR Part 58, Sec. 58.76 and shall be addressed to the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, CDBG Program, MSC-400, 107 East Madison Street, Tallahassee, FL 32399-6508.

One potable water well with limited electrical dependability left residents and City employees in a vulnerable position while attempting to recover in the immediate aftermath.
With a low to moderate (LMI) of over 73% this project qualified as a LMI national objective and has no leverage funds. This project will take place at various sites throughout the city and is considered a city-wide project.
Administrative services will include complete management and reporting for the project with separate tracking for each funding source. A scope of work outlining the tasks to be performed and a proposed cost must be included in the proposal.
