The Community Development Block Grant Citizens' Advisory Committee develops recommendations for use of Community Development Block Grant funds, a federal entitlement program benefiting low and moderate income households.
The committee has up to 20 members who are appointed by the mayor and confirmed by the Governing Body. Members serve one year terms, and during their tenure, consider an eclectic array of proposals for funding from city infrastructure to housing and social service projects.
Meetings generally are held in the Training Room of the Myron E. Scafe Building, 8500 Antioch Road. The public is welcome.
