COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT PROGRAM

What’s available for me?

MORGANTOWN – The City of Morgantown Community Development Office conducting a survey of citizens to identify community needs and priorities for the expenditure of federal funds to low-income families, households, and neighborhoods.

The survey results are one tool used to develop the 2014-2019 Consolidated Plan, a strategic plan that prioritizes expenditure of these funds. Respondents were asked to rank priorities as low, medium, or high, and add any needs not listed on the survey.

Note: While this survey will help to frame the goals and priorities for this five-year plan, it should be noted that the current economic climate has resulted in additional challenges, including reduction or elimination of some sources of government funding and limited resource.

These factors are expected to affect program/project selection, implementation, and goal attainment.  Funding priorities will be determined by available resources and ability to meet performance goals efficiently and within timeframes.
