Federal community development funds reduced
(Mar 28, 2013)
The federal sequestration process has resulted in the city’s allocation of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds being reduced an additional 5 percent.
In addition to the gradual reduction in CDBG funding over the last several years, the sequestration will further reduce the city’s allocation by about $25,000.
This reduction, along with anticipated future cuts, will impact funding for physical improvements in South Westminster and programs serving low- to moderate-income residents, such as the minor home repair program.
