Public Infrastructure and Facilities Improvement Projects
The Office of Community and Economic Development (OCED) has created a Project Checklist to be used by communities and contractors participating in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funded public infrastructure and facilities improvement projects in the Washtenaw Urban County. Examples of CDBG funded projects that are subject to the documents on this page include:
- Water and sewer improvements
- Road improvements
- Sidewalk replacements
- Senior citizen center improvements (in any participating area)

The Project Check List serves as a step-by-step guide for complying with local and federal CDBG program requirements and is divided into 4 main sections: bidding of projects, pre-construction period, contractor/sub-contractor responsibilities, and the reimbursement request process.
