COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT PROGRAM

2018 Entitlement - $272,958 (est.)

 

     A public hearing will be held on Thursday, June 14, 2018 at 1:45 PM at the Redevelopment Authority of the City of Butler office, 129 West Cunningham Street, Butler, PA. The purpose of this meeting is to obtain citizens’ views and comments on how the 2018 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds should be used.

     All proposed activities must conform to applicable Federal and State laws and regulations and must meet one or more of the three following national objectives: benefit low to moderate income persons; prevent or eliminate slums or blight; respond to an immediate situation threatening the health/safety of the community. The amount of funds proposed to directly benefit low to moderate income persons is 70% of the grant or $191,071(+/-).

     The range of activities which may be undertaken include housing rehabilitation, street reconstruction, removal of architectural barriers, improvement to public/community and recreation facilities, fire protection equipment, and demolition of vacant blighted buildings on a spot basis. Other eligible activities may be obtained from the Redevelopment Authority office.

Based on its past policy, it is expected that City Council will most strongly consider activities of a nature which will not result in displacement of persons. The City’s Residential Anti-Displacement and Relocation Assistance Plan is on file at the Redevelopment Authority offices. The City is responsible for replacing all low and moderate income housing units that are demolished or converted. The types and levels of assistance the City would plan to make available to persons displaced by CDBG funded activities will be provided.

     Comments on prior use of CDBG funds will be welcomed.

     Anyone who has a disability or Limited English Proficiency and wishes to participate in the public meeting is asked to call the Redevelopment Authority at 724-283-0116 prior to the meeting to discuss how the Authority can accommodate his/her needs.
