Councilmen allocate CDBG funding to neighborhood groups


January 6, 2009

District 3 Councilman Bruce Kraus has disbursed his district's Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) allocation to more than 30 organizations throughout his district and parts of the city.

"We focused largely on food banks this year," the councilman said of the disbursements noting that each council district took "$15,000 off the top" for hunger efforts this year. In deciding how to disburse the funding, Mr. Kraus said they also factored in past need.

The CDBG funding is used by many other community organizations for operating expenses including supplies and programming.

Councilman Kraus noted that this year the South Side Slopes Neighborhood Association requested their allocation instead be given to the Brashear Association for use in its food pantry.
