The City of East Providence will be presenting the amended proposed use of $692,602 for the 2013-2014 Community Development Block Grant activities. These funds will be available for programming during the fiscal year July 1, 2013 – June 30, 2014.

The original CDBG budget and programming presented during the Public Hearing at the May 7th City Council meeting was based on an estimated award from HUD. The actual award has been released amounting to a $72,427 increase.

The CD Coordinator will be available to answer any questions, provide an overview of past projects, and explain the basic parameters of the program.
