The City of Dinuba has been awarded a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) for its Kern Street Storm Drain Project in the amount of $3 million from the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD).

In November 2018, the HCD announced the availability of $29.6 million in CDBG funds, encouraging eligible cities to apply for funds for a local project. In December, public hearings were held to receive input from the public on community projects to apply for funding.

The city council then directed staff to prepare an application for the Kern Street Storm Drain Improvement Project.

The storm drain project is meant to mitigate flooding downtown through the installation of storm drainpipes, new asphalt street paving and ADA improvements.

Once completed, the Kern Street Storm Drain Project will increase storm drain capacity and help to mediate flooding in areas that have been known to suffer from drainage issues during periods of heavy rain.
