Summary of Accomplishments

Amount of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds made available:  $300,000

Activities undertaken with CDBG funds:  The project involved renovations to the Stevens Memorial Community Library to bring the building into compliance with ADA accessibility standards. 

Amount of CDBG funds made available for activities that benefit the Low and Moderate Income (LMI) National Objective:        $300,000

Displacement resulting from the implementation of this project:       None

Progress towards the program goals and objectives as identified in the original application:  In 2016, the Village was awarded a $300,000 CDBG grant for the library project. All of the CDBG funding was applied to the construction of the improvements.  The project is substantially completed through May 2018.

The Stevens Memorial Community Library provided $136,000 in other funding to complete the renovations and to provide architectural and administrative services for the project.  The Library’s contribution included $86,000 from community fundraising efforts and a State grant for $50,000 through Senator Gallivan’s office. 

The total project cost through May 2018 is $434,000, including $406,000 for construction of the improvements and $28,000 for architectural, construction management and administrative costs.

The rear entrance has been replaced with a covered vestibule and power assisted doors to facilitate entry to the building.  The interior of the rear of the building was remodeled to remove walls and raise the level of the floor 32” to match the level of the main section of the building.  An interior ramp has been constructed, with handrails, landings and lighting to meet ADA standards.  The unisex restroom has been replaced with two new ADA compliant restrooms.  Other improvements included replacement of the flooring, electrical upgrades, replacement of the windows on the rear façade, retrofitting interior doors with lever handle lock sets and closers and installation of accessible drinking fountains and signage.

The project met the LMI National Objective, based on the Low/Mod Limited Clientele criteria.  Per the 2010-2014 American Community Survey 5-Year Estimates, of the 2,609 people who live in the Village of Attica, 7.2% (or 188 persons) have a disability.  The Department of Housing and Urban Development presumes handicapped persons to be low or moderate income.
