“We’re pleased to be able to continue this important program that provides our community with additional opportunities and resources for economic improvement and revitalization,” Community Development Block Grant Coordinator Anna Straczek said in a release.
The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) determines the amount of each entitlement grant by a statutory dual formula which uses several objective measures of community needs, including the extent of poverty, population, housing overcrowding, age of housing and population growth lag in relationship to other metropolitan areas.
While following federal guidelines established by HUD, the city of Naperville awards organizations, or sub-grantees, funding that is dispersed for a variety of uses that include public services, grant administration, public facilities, infrastructure improvements and housing programs, principally for low- and moderate-income persons. For more information on HUD, visit www.hud.gov.
Once applications are submitted to the city, they will be reviewed before being sent to the City Council for consideration. Project funding is anticipated by the City Council in the spring or summer of 2013.
