Bryan residents invited to comment on community needs
The City of Bryan Community Development Advisory Committee (CDAC) will hold its regular public meeting at 6 p.m. on Thursday, February 19, at the Project Unity Beck Street House, 1400 Beck Street, Bryan.
The public meetings are held to give citizens opportunities to comment on community needs, regarding activities and projects for the City’s two federally funded grants, Community Development Block grant (CDBG) and Home Investment Partnership (HOME) program funds. Specific program activities include affordable housing (city wide programs), public facilities/infrastructure, and code enforcement (located in low and moderate income areas of Bryan), economic development and public service funding for non-profit agencies that provide health and social services, primarily low-and moderate-income citizens.
The City of Bryan Community Development Services Department annually receives approximately $1.4 million CDBG and HOME funds. At least 70 percent of the CDBG grant is allocated to eligible activities for citizens who are at, or below, 80 percent of the area’s median income. Eligible activities include owner-occupied housing programs, economic development, public facilities, code enforcement, public services and infrastructure (i.e. streets, sidewalks and sanitary sewer service in low- to moderate-income areas).
