City receives grant to help low, moderate-income residents

CRESWELL – Business Oregon is investing in the City of Creswell through through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program and will receive a grant of $400,000 for a housing repair program provided in partnership with St. Vincent DePaul.
The grants total $8,371,147 and will support 13 city and three county projects. The primary objective of the CDBG program is the development of livable communities by expanding economic opportunities, providing decent housing and creating suitable living environments, principally for persons of low and moderate income.
”We work in partnership with rural Oregon communities to build stable, growing economies,” said Business Oregon assistant director Chris Cummings. ”The projects these investments are supporting will do just that: they set the stage for long-term rural prosperity in Oregon.”
Business Oregon administers the state of Oregon’s annual federal allocation of CDBG funds for non-metropolitan cities and counties. Urban cities and counties, and tribes are not included in the state’s program as they receive CDBG funds directly from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
