Action Plans & Summary
All projects and activities must either principally benefit low-and moderate-income persons, or aid in the prevention or elimination of slums and blight, or meet other community development needs having a particular urgency
The Community Development Block Grant allows the Office of Community Development to provide elderly with assistance in housing rehabilitation and emergency repairs, providing transportation and meals, and providing respite care services. Youth services such as recreation programs, after school programs and day care to assist in the proper development of children and young adults in low and moderate income neighborhoods are also supported through this program.
The Housing Rehabilitation Program allows the township to direct housing funds to one family owner occupied properties. These homeowners are cost burdened and/or have no funds to contribute to maintaining or repairing their homes. Providing this assistance ensures that these homeowners can continue to occupy their homes. As an older community, many of the housing units may contain lead based paint. This program also makes it possible to evaluate and reduce lead based paint.
All projects and activities must both principally benefits low and moderate income persons, or aid in the prevention or elimination of slums and blight, or meet other community development needs having a particular urgency.
