City to host public hearing

MOORE — The City of Moore will hold a public hearing at 5:30 tonight at Moore City Hall, 301 N. Broadway Ave., to gather public input regarding the expenditure of grant funds for two separate but related programs:

· 2014 CDBG entitlement program. The city receives an annual allocation from the Community Development Block Grant Program through the Department of Housing and Urban Development. These funds are intended to provide infrastructure and public service assistance for low-moderate income individuals throughout Moore.

It is anticipated that the City will receive approximately $275,000 in 2014.

· 2013 CDBG-DR Program. In response to the May 20, 2013, tornado, the City of Moore will receive a $26.3 million grant from the Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery Program through the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

These funds are intended to assist the city in its long-term recovery efforts, specifically to address unmet needs and benefit low-moderate income households.

The city may use the CDBG-DR funds for recovery efforts involving housing, economic development, infrastructure, and hazard mitigation.

The city welcomes citizen input at the public hearing to help develop one or both of the grant programs.

For additional questions, call the City of Moore Community Development Department at 793-5053, ext. 1.
