Defiance, Fulton, Henry, Paulding, and Williams Counties intend to apply to the Ohio Department Services Agency (ODSA) for funding under the Small Cities Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program and the HOME Investment Partnerships Program.
The purpose of the public hearings is to provide citizens with pertinent information about the available programs and their requirements. A broad range of activities can be funded through the programs, including: allocation, economic development, downtown revitalization, water and sewer facilities, flood and drainage facilities, streets and sidewalks, senior centers, parks, and demolition of unsafe structures. Projects must be designed to primarily benefit low-to-moderate income persons, aid in the prevention of slum or blight, or meet an urgent need in the community.
The primary focus of the First Public Hearings is to give an overview of the above-listed programs. The second public hearing will be held at a future date, prior to the submittal of specific grant applications. Citizens are encouraged to attend these meetings in order to provide input.
