Help Rock Island decide how to allocate $1 million grant funds

The City of Rock Island is asking residents for feedback on how best to allocate $1 million in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding. 

The federal CDBG money — which is one of the longest-running programs by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development — helps provide affordable housing, anti-poverty programs and infrastructure development, according to a news release.

The public is invited to attend one of several community meetings about the CDBG funding, including two being held on Tuesday, Oct. 24. One session will be held 9-10 a.m. and another 5:30-6:30 p.m. that day at the Rock Island Police Department, 1212 Fifth Ave. 

The public also may take an easy, online survey by visiting this website through Thursday, Nov. 2. 

For more information about the CDBG funding, contact Nichole Mata at (309) 732-2907 or email [email protected].
