County Expects About $220,000 In CDBG

cdbg081Potter County is expected to receive about $220,000 in this year’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). It’s a long-established program that channels federal funds through the state to local governments, supporting a broad range of projects to stimulate the economy and benefit low- and moderate-income residents.

Although the Potter County Board of Commissioners is ultimately responsible for designating how the money will be spent, the administrative responsibilities have for many years fallen to the county’s Redevelopment Authority, where veteran employee Joe Pagano oversees the program.

Pagano plans to review with the commissioners those requests that have been received from boroughs and townships in Potter County. Applications to the Redevelopment Authority must be submitted no later than Feb. 6. A public meeting will be held for input on the CDBG spending plan. The commissioners have until mid-March to adopt the plan and submit it to the Pa. Dept. of Community and Economic Development.

Pagano points out that, to qualify for funding, local projects must meet guidelines that include direct benefit to low- and moderate-income residents, job creation and/or economic development potential.

Some projects that have been submitted in prior years and not funded are eligible for consideration during the 2009 selection process. Anyone with questions about the CDBG program should contact his office at 274-7031. Potter County Today
