City to hold work session for CDBG funding

LOCK HAVEN — Lock Haven City Council will be holding a virtual work session involving the first wave of its Community Development Block Grant-CARES Act program on June 8 at 5 p.m. through Zoom.

The meeting will be broadcasted on the city’s Facebook page “Lock Haven City” and YouTube channel “City of Lock Haven PA” to allow for real-time comments from the public.

The first wave of the city’s CDBG-CV allocation is $193,732. Funds must be used to prevent, prepare for, or respond to the coronavirus. At least 70 percent of the entitlement grant must be utilized for the activities which benefit low and moderate income persons.

A wide range of activities may be carried out with CDBG-CV funds including public facilities and improvements, testing facilities, public services, assistance to businesses, temporary rental assistance, mortgage assistance, planning, capacity building and technical assistance.

In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, individuals needing special accommodation — including auxiliary communicative aids and services — during this hearing should contact Abigail Roberts, Planner and Development Coordinator, at 570-893-5903 at least three days before the hearing.
