County town sending out surveys for grant funding

Thursday, August 27, 2009

The town of Knightsville is attempting to qualify for a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and is currently seeking grant funding for water system improvements.

The town is seeking grant funding for storm water improvements. The CDBG Program is a federally funded grant program intended to benefit a majority of low- to moderate-income persons with various community development public assistance projects such as improvements to wastewater, water, roads, bridges and debris removal.

To receive the federally funded grants, a special income survey must be completed in order to prove that a majority of the residents meet the U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) income limits for low and moderate persons.

Those who receive income surveys in the mail means they have been randomly selected to participate in the process. It is vital that the survey be completed fully and returned in the self-addressed stamped envelope as soon as possible.

It is a possibility that the Town of Knightsville residents may receive both income surveys.

Those who do are urged to complete each survey because they are two separate community projects.

Cooperation regarding the matter is appreciated to be able to improve both communities.
