Early Childhood Development Center
16120 60th Ave. NW
Cass Lake, MN 56633
LLBO plans to submit an application for the Indian Community Development Block Grant Program (ICDBG). This funding will be used towards the construction of a new Child Care Center to be operated by the Leech Lake Early Childhood Development Program. This Center will provide high quality child care for 32 infants and toddlers with learning enhancements provided by Early Head Start. It will be located adjacent to the Early Childhood Development Programs in Cass Lake.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has published a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for the Indian Community Development Block Grant (ICDBG) program. This is a competitive grant application between Indian Tribes. The maximum amount that would be awarded through a successful application from the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe (LLBO) is $700,000. Eligible uses of ICBDG funds include Economic Development, Homeownership Assistance, Housing Rehabilitation, Housing Acquisition, Land Acquisition to Support New Housing, Microenterprise Programs, New Housing Construction, or Public Facilities and Improvements.
Any resident who would like to review and comment on the proposal and is unable to attend this meeting may do so by contacting Carol Priest at Leech Lake Tribal Development, 190 Sailstar Dr. NW, Cass Lake, MN 56633, email [email protected], or phone 218-335-2921.
